Rooted Deep – Poem of the Month – May 2020

Rooted Deep

Days, weeks, months
of verbal battles
and silences 
Jockeying for post position
in a race of insanity
Who can shout the loudest?
Who will be heard?
Who can inflict
the most pain?
Where is the breaking point?
and there it was
The finality of action
A divisive statement 
spat like venom from
a snake’s jaws
The words slowly resonating
and the brain processing
It was at that darkest moment
we crossed the Delaware
The coin had dropped
in the slot
The words ceased
and silence prevailed
A rainbow appeared
as clarity was found
A tumultuous synergy
ingrained in the soul
A dying ember destined
to be the eternal flame
Sometimes blinded
and confused
but tethered
by heart strings
A love with roots deep
from another time

In the glorious sunset
It is so easy to forget 
The times of trouble
When we were so young
and how far we’ve come
from love’s young couple
We fought like cat and dog
Sometimes it was just a slog
Never thinking we’d make it
As poor as church mice
Never having anything nice
Making do with polish and spit
Somehow, we survived
Now I feel we have arrived
at our life’s destination
Stronger now than then
Finally knowing it when
it was worth the aggravation
Loving you faithfully
Accepting faults gracefully
For us we made it through
Now in the sunset of life
Grateful to still be man and wife
Really, who knew?
