Simple Ceremonies

Simple Ceremonies

Shall I pour
or shall you

A cup of shared 
remembrances
or renewing 
an old affair

A simple ceremony
of life and loving

We have so many
do we not

So many simple ceremonies
in our lives

Sharing good times
and bad

Sharing the ceremonies
of hope
and fear
and death 
and joy

Such joys we share
in simple ceremonies

A welcoming hug
a kiss
a sigh
a loving embrace
as we live
and before we die 

Knowing that you're there
and 
I am here for you

During all the 
simple ceremonies
to come

Gestures of understanding 
and forgiveness
we express
through simple ceremonies

Nodding
smiling
caressing a cheek
or wiping away a tear

Simple gifts
ceremonies
testaments to the love
we share

Touches
glances
waves of recognition
and embraces
for the lovers
in our lives

The many lovers
and loves

But you my love 
are here
and will be forever
forever
my love
sharing the rituals
and ceremonies of desire
and conssumation.

And we become so much more
than we were
and remain what we are

Laughing together
chuckling
giggling
tickling
dancing
dancing the ceremonial dance
of love and fruition
sharing a ceremony of recognition
of unquelled humanity
and unparalleled humaneness
and unequalled acceptance
of love
