Because you said you love me

Because you said you love me

my heart raced to the truth

flashes of a life fulfilled

old after our youth

visions of passionate laughter

and private moments shared

small things made momentous

secrets and tears

overwhelmed in the presence of your love

and that mine is right behind

sparks not only in my heart but racing through my mind

exploding in the knowing of all the precious time

hazy visions of a long life

it doesn’t matter where

but because you said you love me

I am there.

Margaret Morton April 19, 2020

For Robert because he said he loved me
