A little-lion of unframed memories,
And a zillion of emotion fashioned.
I am going to remember this moment
For life ever more.
I know I will.
I am growing now
As change morphs into challenge
Or is it the trickery of life;
Its’ taste a treat with hindsight.
I love you like the ageless tree-trunks outside
Soldiering for our love,
Shielding our lives
But silently their oldness untold;
A lineage wiped out by shifting winds,
Frailty unknown and fear untried like molten tar.
I will remember this moment
Like sweet scone-warm afternoons
Of a lesser life gone by
My memory will hold this
A single chord to my lyric
Reeling with euphoric lilt.
