THIS GOLD BAND

This Gold Band

This gold band,
no longer fitting my finger,
still encircles my life
encompassing the we
of you and me.

Constant confirmation.
Continuum of promises kept,
future intentions.

Engraved within,
your enduring message,
‘Always’.

  1. Thanks, ladies (and fellow poets)! ;-) Here's hoping it brings some folks over to Amazon.com to help out Doctors Without Borders! :-)

    1. THANKS, Sara! It's one of my favorites. :-) (And, I hope, one of my husband's favorites too -- in spite of the fact that he believes "real" poetry is supposed to rhyme.) LOL
