Legacy

Linked hearts
handle well the extremes-
tightly taunting tugs,
painful pivotal pulls,
the quick twistings,
sudden unravelings
the pull-aparts,
the put-togetherings.

With love so precious,
indeed, so priceless,
it’s cherished, adored,
even when love’s shade
pulls darkest dark
over lightest light,
we’re assured it’s all right
in our day or in our night.

When wonder arrives with
out-of-the-blue questionings,
in times of unclear answerings,
we know that in such seasons,
spoken and unspoken words
mean exactly what was ever
meant to be for you, for me.

We’re assured – it’s all right
in our day or in our night.
If these lips have
no other day to speak,
you would know and 
recall the message well.

If there’s no other poem
to ever be written by me,
your heart joined with mine
is the sanctimonious script,
my love’s story to tell
and retell-
I am yours.
You are mine.
Love sublime.
For all time.

Beautiful love.
Beautiful legacy.
