A Love From Youth

Life and light
yesterday and today

A love from youth
still holding some bloom
like a perennial blossom.

Life and light
yesterday and today
Penetrating still
into the gloom
in rays that deny
the opacity of broken hearts.

Translucent are the strings
upon which yet hang
the hopes of a heart
And how those tender threads
break the light into prismatic rainbows.

So thin the gossamer lines
Suspending a heavy heart.
Yet love is so strong
No matter how thin the hopes
From which suspended.

Light and life, yesterday and today
A love from youth remembered.
