And If (poem)

And if a nighttime stole away the light

A dark foreboding ambles down the street

The mornings dimmed for memories to write

A colorless tomorrow doomed to greet


And if the scent of sweetness went away

The plain mundane would gain the rule of spring

As thoughts would turn to just another day

Fair melodies no longer meant a thing


And if the sands of time would cover all

The winds would blow our dust into our face

Those things which were are harder to recall

And clouds of dreams drift far from our embrace


The sunset bids a greeting to the moon

As in my sight forever comes in view

And all and ifs will fall away too soon

At least I had this precious while with you

A contemplative world built for those who see with their hearts.

You are an endless gallery of fine works---a symphony of melodious

harmonies that can soften the hardest shell of fictitious veneer.

You charm us and show us realities of admiration and the truest

form of love.

And, for this, I thank you.

This is a lovely poem. I love how you seem to state that all the ordinary things you share have given you an extraordinary life with this person.
