Tapestry of Love
Just as bright red colors fade to become soft pinks, over time, I felt our woven love fade into the dead of night. The memories of our joyous occasions have become but a blur. In springtime, bright greens give birth of new life only to return to death six months later. Yet that is the lifetime she was given.
I sit, reflective in thought of our lifetime together, however short or long that lifetime was. Our moments together have now become only a memory, faint in colors of faded reds, greens, and blues. The tapestry has worn, and more than the edges have become frayed. What once held our ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude, have now become cobwebs held together by stands of silk and dusk.
I try to remember what it was like to hold you in my arms, but the memories of yesteryear, have all but faded away. My forgetfulness was discretionary at best, or contrary to the truth. But either way, my love for you is just a faded memory in the tapestry of love.
As the seasons have gone full circle, Spring is upon us again. The faded greens that mourned death, have turned into bright greens once more, signifying the newest of life. Beautiful shades of blue light up the morning sky and help to warm our souls. Last year’s faded pinks have given way to a host of neophyte reds. Moreover, frowns have been turned right side up, producing bright smiles; smiles that touch and warm the heart, for that was exactly what your smile did to me. From the beginning, when I laid my eyes on you, my heart became woven into the Tapestry Of Love
