Apoem of days gone by

A poem I wrote some years ago for my cousin...long after we first had something of a brief but intense, though somewhat confusing interaction. We've only been around each other a handful of times over the past 35 years, but my feelings for him, at least, remain strong. What his were, or are, I have only a slight idea of.

********************************************************************

Moments between us, were they ever truth?

They've writ themselves anew since long ago.

But think again, though distance dims the lines,

Fragments remain, and memories must flow.

So moments hang suspended, lost in time,

Till all the ravages of time have passed,

Yet still remain, enfolded in my heart.

Conscience recants no moment meant to last.

If folly melts away as youth subsides

Then let me stay entrapped another year,

For passing days confirm an age, and yet

I cannot love you any less, I fear.

I see that this is an older post, but I really appreciate your work. I sense much of the same sincerity in your words that I feel towards my cousin. Fate is fickle; another life, perhaps?
