The day was ending quietly,
the phone never rang.
I sat on the front porch
trying to understand.

Clouds bellowed,
I noticed there were no birds,
silence with the exception
of a gentle breeze that stirred.

Was a storm churning,
raging in distant miles?
I thought about “you”
and our tribulations and trials.

We thought nothing
could change our path,
we knew our love
would always last.

The love lasted
but we did not,
time changed
the way we thought.

Why I thought of you now
in this moment of time,
left me to awed thoughts
until I heard the church bells chime.

I cannot remember hearing
them ring this time of day,
I thought how “unusual”
and my thoughts of you faded away.

Hi Tracey,

This is very good and I love, love, love this stanza.

The love lasted
but we did not,
time changed
the way we thought.

My best to you, Janet xoxoxoxo
