Remembering the Sweet


As Night Approaches – photo by Wild Thing

Shared moments
Of a lifetime
Weddings … children
Laughter … tears
Parallel paths
Then veering apart 

Imagined slights
After time
Are repaired
Because the bond
Of shared moments
Was always there 

They can’t be stripped
Away from mind
Or from the soul
It is this …
That holds us up 

Bitterness put away
Only the sweet
Allowed to remain
Telling others
“There was the time …”
Smiling through tears
