This poem was written at a retreat after being given the image that I have attached. I was able to imagine what life will be like for me in another 25 years time.
It’s a long knowing look
Delight in a beautiful heart,
Being close to another,
Celebrating difference together,
The suprise of a shared life,
That is still unfolding,
The trust of two committed hearts,
A lifetime of understanding,
That sacrifices anything today,
For the opportunity of tomorrow,
The smile of appreciation,
At the mystery in the other.
