How many years have passed
since that day
when our eyes met
across a room?
Strangers - yet
it felt as though
I'd always known
the line of your chin,
the curve of your cheek.
You carried me along
with romantic gestures -
moonlit evenings by the river
watching the stars,
giving them names.
Strangers - learning
each others ways.
Years tumbled by:
marriage, babies,
schooldays, a house move.
New neighbours,
strangers - living
different lives to the one we knew.
I look at you now:
the line of your chin,
the curve of your cheek.
You carry me along
with new found ideas -
that leave me cold
and feeling old.
Strangers - once more.

Thanks David, did no-one notice "Last Moments" or was it that bad no-one wanted to comment on it? :-)

Made me scared of life. All of us are on our own. Argh. Like this long and narrow poem, with its warm normal middle of babies and families surrounded by the awkwardness of pulling someone and of admitting it's over. Love, Maria.
