that day


I love that day,
a day pristine and new.
our lives intersected
when I met you.

I love that day,
a day so full.
when we joined as one,
two hearts equal pull.

I love those days,
when tears and pain
brought precious lives,
heart’s warm light reign.

I love that day,
when we saw God’s face.
we truly knew life –
one family, our place.

I love that day,
yesterday, I think.
holding hands tightly,
savoring moment, try to not blink…

I’ll love that day,
even with time’s eclipse.
to remember always a life of beauty
in our pressing lips.
