From Love

The two danced until they
fell in love
out of time and circumstance
It was not to be
though it would continue in their hearts forever

There were families and expectations to meet
Still somehow life insisted on joining them forever
The day she was born
was the last day they would see one another for 23 years

He came to carry her down the stairs
and drive her to the hospital
She gave birth in a place of lonely redemption

But Jen kept them together in her heart
and one day found them
& invited them over
to see what they had done together

a lovely impossibility come to life
