at all...




it is not that I love
you like a sigh or song - it is
that I love you at all, that

taunts all removal of light bent
from my life - stilling to its frame
but black and white -  and lending
loves memory
infallibly new,  lost only undying
even as time goes by.....

  14. As time goes by, it seems nothing escapes deterioration. Except maybe LOVE, which keeps growing in spirit, depth, power, and tenderness.

    A sigh is a sigh, a kiss is a kiss, and love is still love--as time goes by.

    THANK YOU Barbara. Loved it
