Miles and Miles
There's once in a lifetime
and there's once in a while...
The difference is more than a million miles!
The long road to a journey's end
From the moment of birth to the birth of best friends
A fitting stanza to a poems end
An epitome for which
your lifetime spent
Tenacity forging and kept
One day arriving at that "someday"
you hoped to find but doubted would come
Oh but the glory now that it's done!
We speak congenially of dreams
with an honesty bedded like the deep
when "met" it dawns - your deepest needs
Firm as a driving wind
Fixed like habitual ways
An enduring than refuses goodnight to the day
To secure the very life we were meant for
To find, open, and walk through that door
past secret thoughts of "there must be more"
Only to feast on transcendental happiness
which words cannot bare to weigh
now evening and morning in your arms where I lay
What hand or soul more perfectly paired
A destiny of perfection benevolently prepared
In silence bowed for gratitude's prayer
Every step, every mile
miles and more, the millions of miles
want not for a single moment to waste
Cashmere touches tinted pastel hydrangea blue
... your loving eyes shine with raptured disbelief
to have found another comparable to you
You looking at me with incipient serenity
Me staring at you...
even etched wrinkles of sadness withdrew
Undressing layers of disenchantments held in the queue
When our "Once in a Life Time"
sketch upon our world of countless smiles
unrivaled laughter evolved
from that one of "once in a while"
One marriage being made
Somewhere beyond the passion
of "Fifty Shades of Grey"
