chest… and stayed there,
cupped in the depth of my heart.
As decades blurred around Us,
Our Season never changed,
departed, nor waned.
And when the gravestone beckoned
Us, to come, nestle beneath it…

I wreathed our new home
with as much love as I could muster,
in preparation of Her coming back to Me.
