A Bundle of Love

.

Wrap it in a pretty ribbon

to disguise the blemished parts,

the little imperfections, the

unintended weed patch by

surrounding it with baby's

breath and rose petals.

.

At a distance, perfect. Slightly

frayed from untying and retying,

add more love, a sprig of joy,

an easily identified rose bud

or two, along with the recycled

ribbon.

.

The original bundle was fresh

with promises, alive and robust.

Now, years gone, decades done,

the ribbon faded and frayed,

it is time to rebind a few dead

stems that have wilted and

lost a leaf or two.

Thank You

With longevity,  love fades to habit and familiarity; until death...or continues via momentum. Still, it can endure faithfully, just differently. Thanks 4 the comment. ~A~

it devolves even though loyal and totally there, just a bit wilted with age  ~A~
