~Note found on the refrigerator~ Transcending Disappointment

08 Dec

Darling:

Do you think everything that we have done

will get us to where we said, we are going?

Are we just spitting in the wind of failure?

Are our dreams so “far fetch” that the path has no direction?

I do not think so.

Our greatest success was when we met

and agreed to go together.

Let us continue, to find each future,

that one way or another, seems to get better.

We are no longer the first nor are we the last

to find the dark before the dawn.

Love is not ahead of us,

and it certainly is not behind us.

It is in the movement,

we create in constant,

between us.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

 Sundays, offers thanks for some,

others may sleep late.

Last week’s plate emptied for a new date

or a completely forgotten recipe. Let me see,

where was I? Passing through

forgiven and forgotten!

Mondays dream come true.

    That is some note on the refrigerator! Love is in the movement, yes … if it stops growing, it just becomes stagnant. Well said poetically. Smiles.

    and agreed to go together.”

    Hey ZQ, My first time here and this one took my eye… A truly knowing and elegantly written poem about love and, as others have indicated, you closing stanza pretty much nails it… With Best Wishes Scott http://www.scotthastie.com
