A poem for my wife’s birthday.
Salutations for Sally
The years don’t pass slowly anymore,
But there’s still time for an eternity
In your eyes, in your arms, your love.
Each moment a step to infinity,
But time doesn’t march, it ascends,
And we rise on the years,
Sadder, yes, but wiser and
More loving, more understanding.
And you lift everything around you
To the stars and beyond.
You are both the zenith and quasar.
And as time dissolves to energy,
I will be your light—particle and wave.
Photons on a joint journey—
Born of a supernova—
In eternal abandon,
We will live forever.
