Every Season Comes Back, Years Do Not – A Love Poem

Every season comes back, years do not – A Love Poem

The world fills again with sunlight
Each new day grows brighter and longer
There is blossom on trees and birds sing a song
The promise of youth and new beginnings

She calls him: ‘My big strong dreamer’
They sleep in the grass under the trees
He calls her a thousand sweet names
Their soul love emerging from within

When you’re young, spring feels like infinity
As if there’s no end to this joy
But in all it’s youthful turbulence
Spring passes, slowly summer begins

Great is the sun, and wide his rays go
Through an empty blue sky with repose
Occasionally, by way of contrast
God draws the heavens and sends in the rain

She calls him ‘my big love forever’
They sleep on the shore in the starry night
He declares her his love and proposes
In the timeless now, their bond evolves from within

When summer arrives, they rest in her beauty
Their love like two burning diamonds
But soon the heat ends, milder rays descend
Summer passes and suddenly autumn begins

The days grow short, nights getting longer
Storm weeps loudly, rain forming puddles
But that doesn’t bother them at all
They still have each other to hide and to hold

She calls him ‘my true companion’
Every night they tug their children in
He tells her she made his life complete
They look at their kids and smile from within

When autumn arrives, green meadow turns brown
Their love is touched by warm colors
But soon nature is moving to quiet sleep
Autumn passes and cold winter begins

In winter death caresses everything
That fact cannot be eliminated
Briefly like a butterfly is our existence
When you have to let go of each other

She calls him ‘her love for eternity’
He lies on her sick bed besides her
Silently holding her in his old arms
A last look in her eyes, cold grows from within

When winter arrives, everything hibernates
Your sap is spent, all is emptiness
You long for a blossom, for new light brought
Every season comes back, years do not
