Life And Love - Poem by James Casey

Life And Love

I am not one with seasons past
Not even one with yesterday
My memories are not freshly cast
Thrust deeply in my mind today…

I remember a Summer when
Our family was together as one
But this is now and that was then
It certainly is completely undone.

I still reflect with fond recall
The summers spent with you
But like the leaves that die in fall
The season passed again adieu

The Winter was my discontent
Must wait for Spring to rise, but then
That time came to represent
A cause abandoned once again

Another nine years passed to Spring
When we would once again begin
Undoing past mistakes and bring
To surface, my love for you within

So yes, my dear, I'm often asked
Of remembrances found
And ours is the simplest, task
Just turn the past around…

And seek the joy of that which may
Be ours, as we have defined
Both our hearts embraced today
For love knows no state of mind

Jim 1988

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I knew I loved my now wife as a friend. When my wife of 26 years left me and our children, she set out to destroy a company that I and others had created. She did that. Three years later I again found my now wife and together, as before, created a new business that was even greater than the original one. We married in the fall of 1991
