Poetry Pleases: Eternity

“The circle of life spins
Returning to just us…
Mary Clemons recognizes eternity in true love.

The late afternoon sun
Silently slides across the ceiling
As your breath soft with sleep
Gently brushes my cheek

Decades have passed since
Our love was newly known
Flittering thoughts recall
Afternoons of laughter

Blessings came as two sons
Filled our lives with their love

Teaching life’s lessons,
Nurturing their talents,
Our two little ones step out
Into their future, fine men

The circle of life spins
Returning to just us

I lay here watching crimson
As the afternoon sun dims
Basking in your love knowing
Some things are eternal.
