Until it is,
The only exception
the need to be loved.

Life is a cycle.
The Universe teaches us this fact.
Everything is a measure.
an inch, a foot, a meter,
an acre, a knot, a score, a chain
Everything has a shape, an identity
Each beautiful in its own way,
specific to the eye of its beholder
subject to change
without prior notice,
We all age
some of us with grace
as we gain a little bit of wisdom
along the way.
no matter what we try
no matter what we do
we cannot give up
because we are the only ones who can change
we are the only change
A bite in a crispy apple does not diminish it
It becomes a part of all of us
Leaves change and fall
because the bare tree needs to show off the
complexity of its limbs,
the very ones that become the house,
the love letter,
that pencil that draws the last leaf,
or the orchard of whatever suits your fancy.
Life is a cycle:
some unfulfilled dreams perhaps
glimpses of clouds
Enjoy all of it
See yourself in all of it.
All of it is you
it is me
It is us.
Ornately carved in a tree trunk
The initials W & M find permanent refuge
For years people have walked by in wonder about their fate
A small stone bench sits underneath
Waiting patiently for them to return
While Autumn leaves gather round
In attention of the crunching sound
made as they approached.
Many falls have come and gone; almost 40 to be exact.
And what do you know W & M finally did come back.
They watched another couple sitting as they had sat so many times before.
on the small stone bench underneath the tree,
where their initials had been engraved forever more.
