Time Flies!

Stars in the Night Sky through a Telescope

Time Flies!

Helios, in his fiery chariot,

crosses the sky each day.

His sister Selene,

in her chariot of silver,

travels the night sky.

We mark our days.

The moon waxes and wanes.

The seaons change.

Our birthdays mark the years

since the planets aligned…

and we were born.

Robert, my sun rises

and sets in you.

I will love you all my days.

I thank my lucky stars

for the day we met.

    1. Thank you, Kitrika.I am glad you like this poem.

      Every year I make Robert a homemade birthday card. I think this one is from a couple of years ago. Time is very precious! We often wish we had met a little sooner in our lives. We’ve been together for 6 years.
