Life’s credentials

Life’s credentials

Love
           here where
the petals fell
           and withered
into dust
           remained

Now
           with years
piled upon me
           less supple
of limb
           and mind
less agile
           love remains

Words are actions
           actions words
the deed of truth
           is all that lasts
and life until
           love’s last breath
