Monday Poetry Train #11

This is the poem I wrote for the invitations for the party we threw for my parent‘s 40th anniversary in 1995. It is the only thing I've ever had published as it was published in our local paper, The Longview Daily News, supposedly to announce and honor the anniversary of a local couple active in volunteer services. But an editor cut all the material tying it to them for space considerations whih irked me no end and makes me leary of submitting for publication in any forum where I cannot control the presentation. Yeah, I know. That's rules out just about every forum but blogging. I'm trying to get past that issue. But really. If editors can cut the thing that is the core of it, the whole point of it.....
I posted it before, shortly after my Dad passed on. The day before I read it aloud at his service. I post it again today in his memory as Tuesday would have been my parents 52 anniversary and thus the two of them are on my mind. I'd hoped to include a wedding pic but I forgot to remind my sister to scan and email it to me:




TIME IN ETERNITY
by Joy Renee


Time was there was no we
Only you and only me
Solitary I’s enclosed, apart.


Time went far to bring us here
To where we are--our
Unitary I’s--entwined by love.


Time is now for making strong
Our fragile, time-made bonds--
Singular I’s and thou’s in synergy.


Time will be when all our we’s
Conjoin in heaven’s harmony--
Tributary we’s in eternity.
