Our Window Of Yesterdays

Like Cinderella’s
glass slipper

only one shoe
had the right fit.

In life’s early years
it took time
for the right fit —
trying on
many different shoes
before the music
brought us together.

slipped into you

tying you
to my body –

only you
could get so close.

have walked

many miles
not always in step
but at the start of each day
you were there.

supported each step
through the good times
when we danced together
and the bad times
when the music stopped.

Over the years
I knew
where we were going
you knew
where we had been
as our
have now worn thin —
held together by twin
only now expressing
the secret face
of our enter selves.

Having been seduced
by a lover’s
darkest kiss
no longer laced together —
merely to be left behind
in the window
of yesterdays
kissed only
by tomorrow’s sun.
