Love comes unexpectedly to fill the "marriage void".

 BENEDICK

remembering an ascent on a path         

unknown and feeling the strength
of your hand in mine
 
            remembering a summit and a scene
below and feeling the thrill
of nearly touching the stars
 
            remembering a harsh and chilly
wind and feeling secure
in encircling arms
 
remembering a voice that was
hushed and low and feeling the pleasure
in returning the same
 
            remembering a glance that
asked and told and feeling bewildered
at my sure response
 
            remembering a farewell that
confused and delighted and feeling assured
of unspoken love
