Porchswings and Fireflies

There will come a time
when this moment shall pass
and we will be alone
to enjoy what we missed
making up for the years we gave to others
will be first on our list

yes, the time will come
to sit on our porchswing
and watch the fireflies
light up the night sky with their glowing frames
saying i love you as i look into your eyes
and gently speak your name

As time passes on
the seasons change without much notice
but we don't mind
for we remain the same
in our world of porchswings and fireflies
nothing changes
except the seasons
they go unnoticed...

    Kurt, this is one of my favorites on that winner's list. I'd put it higher. It is a very well written poem with a loveliness about it that is eternal as the couple's love.
