ephemeral, vague, transient, lost—
but no, so far from it, so very
distinct from cliché descriptions

no, my memories of you, of us
are so far removed from fleeting
depictions of routine conveyance

making love to you, hovering
over warmly opening offering you,
pulsing deeply within embracing you

I treasure them all, every eagerly
living breathing memory of us
trusting always and forever in this

that I love you and you love me
and the days to come are ours
to discover together
