I was ready when you appeared

The storm painted a double rainbow

Waiting, wore my patience threadbare

Just for awhile, I needed to fly solo

We looked at each other from afar

I’d wait eons just for a chance

And swam through the clouds

To be partnered in this romance

Only some wines improve with age

Like people, chemistry enhances few

No longer young, approaching twilight

Ripened, my nature sprang anew

My color is less bright, but splendid

We are cooing without a sound

A private wavelength between hearts

Fluttering, floating off the ground

A sweet gust of spring momentarily arrives

For a bud growing through the frost

A reminder of hope and renewal

Something found, feared lost
