This Love

Many years ago

I stood before the gathering

Of family and friends

And I spoke to you about this love.

~

This love so fine

And I described it with ancient words

Love lives on with us

Into our old age.

~

How was I to know at that moment

What was to be ahead

The trajectory of love

And the precious task of its growth?

~

To learn to love and accept

To sit in this heart space

Of unconditional regard

To appreciate how we age and evolve.

~

This older version of love

Perhaps not so rare

Yet still so fine

Fills me with gratitude.
