sweet, like sugar cane…

the key fits the lock just right, as it did
on that fateful night, when we first met,
feeling free

were we

to explore, understanding our hearts’ galore,

that first step, in a multifaceted romance,

deep feelings lasting centuries, unbound, limitless,
and grounded in a love,

found under a field of compassion, where flowers
grow tall, and their hearts sprout everything,
no doubt


resoluteness, replaced all doubt, and what did sprout,
was tender as a supple branch, blowing
in the afternoon breeze

and, as I reach for my keys one last time, I reminisce on all
the love we felt within, and know
time will move on

yet what will remain is the key just the same,
the one we used to unlock years
of passionate embrace

and a love that was sweet, like sugar cane…
