love beyond the seasons.
a poem. Of Ephraim.
If winter is us apart
Spring time our blossom,
And if summer us together
Then autumn is where
Our love became one heart.
The autumns haze my memories
Whilst the winters join to freeze my feel to you,
But then the springs shine on me lights of remembrance
Whilst the summers then thaw out my worries of you.
Here in summertime light,
1000 years could pass by
And we wouldn’t know it,
Our hairs could grow grey
And we wouldn’t see it,
If it were cold we would be indifferent to it
For our warmth together
Would wage war against it
And our eyes would interlock
So that no offence could waver the foundation of it.
Even in uncertainty, we sow together trust
And in this place time stands still,
Our minds weaving together history’s longest tapestry.
If it were to have a name I’d call it love,
Others say understanding
And some say indifferent.
Indifferent to the outside world’s voices
Yet sensitive to our own that interlock
To transcend any action or thought –
But I call it love.
