Our Love

Our love was eternal, we said
that we could not live without each other
preferring death over a life apart.
There were more than a few others like us
who had grazed the same earth before,
some a generation while some
more than a thousand years ago
and almost identical were our words.
But life being full of twists and turns
as most of our words were undone
by fate or in the course of that wanted life
while charms and mystery grew too mundane.
How futile then our promises might seem
viewed in the clear light of posterity!
