One Year

  
It’s been a year now that I’ve been here with you in Swansea.  Still, I love you, now more than ever. I just wanted to let you know. You never know in the blink of an eye how life will change. So, I am learning from you…what you’ve taught me and that is to live well, work hard at it,  love with all your heart and to be kind and always forgiving. 
To the shore she comes 

Displays of grace, 

With confidence and restraint

Her presence with power 

A beauty challenging 

My every resistance. 
Strength envelopes the waters

The feathers soft to the touch

Gliding through the deep. 
To see this mirror image

Like that of two swans,

Locked in a courtship 

A dance of love sworn. 
There is never a battle 

Only displays of strength and will

At last they take off

Time to glide. 
Love is a flight vigour,

A fighting urge to turn around

And if you hold on; to see nature 

In a beautiful reflection

Of us. 

– for J.
