Our Window Of Yesterdays

Like Cinderella’s
Glass slipper

Only one shoe
Had the right fit.

In life’s early years
It took time
Searching
For the right fit —
Trying on
Many different shoes
Before the music
Brought us together.

I
Slipped into you

Tying you
To my body –

Knowing
Only you
Could get so close.

We
Have walked

Many miles
Not always in step
But at the start of each day
You were there.

You
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
 souls
Have now worn thin —
Broken
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.

My Stardust Memories — Revisited   3 comments

my stardust memories (1st posted December 2005) — Image by kenne

my stardust memories

past, resisting replay
but for stardust of yesterdays

yesterdays, imparting time and place
gently massaging forgotten dreams

dreams, giving clues to
my stardust memories

memories, fading for now
only reborn to imagination

imagination, touching the soul
engaging new moments

moments, experiencing rapture
in the joy of our love

love, living yesterday’s stardust
the music of today’s legends

legends, lighting our essence
upon which the future exist.
