Love Again


Twenty years have dulled our touch

Made us pull away too much


You talked on and shed some tears

I held back with hidden fears


All our trips, the joys we had

You the Mom, I the Dad


Three young girls in swimwear clad

Playing on, made us glad


The girls grew up, we faced new things

Often felt like queens and kings


Watched them spread their little wings

Hesitant meanderings


Sometimes laughed, sometimes cried

Sometimes, breathless, almost died!


Twenty years we shared a bed

Now we face the years ahead


Twenty years since we were wed

Sorry for some things we said


Needing answers now and then

How to learn to love again


Written Summer 1991
