Last night as the dust descended
           I thought of how long
I have known these streets
           the fields and the woodlands
the winding roads and the houses
           barely changed since my childhood
and I thought too of other streets
           I have known in other places
so far away and yet
           I could still walk them in my mind

I thought too of all the love
           that has come into my life
and how some has remained
           and some has left me forever
and I thought of you and what
           your presence means to me
and how the days pass
           and the seasons come and go
and how in reality we are
           in a kind of fresh infancy
once again taking the first steps
           uttering the first words
holding hands and hoping
           that the feelings we share
will continue to grow and
           that our love will truly prosper
