Once Upon a Time

on April 17, 2020

We met again in a magical moment
Forty years later
At our high school reunion
Time suddenly shrunk
To the here and now

We fell in love
For the first time together
We had each traveled that road before
Then sadly reached the end of the journey

Now everything sparkled
Snuggly close and splendid
For a while

Until gauzy distance
Seemed what we preferred

    This feels so bittersweet.
    Lovely poem, Ina.

  2. A lovely story in a poem, of time spent in love then the need to move on to other things.
