Now and Forever

another new poem arrives…


Now and Forever

Now and Forever: A Marrying Poem (for my wife)


i looked at her

she reminded me

forever begins now


in a letter

comes a present

i receive


from her

from my past:


“my forever is beginning”


i had said

when she came


i look at her

she reminds me

forever began now


October 2010

January of ‘14

still forever,

still beginning


forever is never


but it’s relate-ive


in other words –

“as long as” –

“i” holds together,

also “you,” and then “we”


i look at you

the seeing re-minds

the hearing and touch

the tasting and smell

of forever,

and now
