Love ‘n Time


We were there

In the deep woods and wilds


Fine and fair

With raven black hair

You were

As we crossed lines

Of the unknown

With wild abandon

Joy and laughter

Anticipation each and every day

Of each other

And new lines


Until the day

We were safe

And secure

And missing

Each other

Each and every day

We cross lines

Of sight

Now and again

And think back

To lines

Joy and laughter

Again and again

Indelible ink

Blood red

On puffy white cumulus clouds

Shaped as a bird in flight


Blood red

Into deep blue sky

Marks the time

When we were there

Crossing lines

With wild abandon
