Petals

And so
after gaining all the world
we shall lose each other?

We failed to heed the admonition:
putting our stores in earthly treasures
coveting our bodies and our minds
losing the spirit we shared?

When we had vowed
in the depths of our hearts
in the holy sanctuary
and before God and family
we shall part our company?

And become again
what we once were
not so very long ago -
strangers - only now
once lovers and dreamers?

We spoke the words
repeated so many times:
you and I for all eternity?
You and I?...
