Ten Years Gone

When we were such little fools that we took our hand-holding and plan-making for granted.
Before we learned to deride at will and were consequently spoiled,
we had those moments of glow.

Before we allowed life's jaundiced near us, we ran with the energy of an atom. And were bonded as tightly.

And random thoughts still stray to those glowing sprung times though it is no longer practicable nor prudent, and I remember your visits to my sick bed.
Ten years gone.
