Love in Red and Gold

Love in Red and Gold
Form: Raven’s Rovi Sonnet 16
Theme: Love
Subject: Getting older

The honeymoon shine is faded in time
And the dusky dawn hours of love have past
This autumn of life we are in our prime
My fingers seeks yours while kicking through leaves
The dying memories of passing years
In boxes of photos stored in the eaves
The summer of youth slowly disappears
But in those days did we bother with time
Chasing dreams and running from all those fears
Not understanding what the mind perceives
Yet now we have grown to be wise and strong
By believing that only love can last
The hot summer days when time seemed too long
As autumn comes so we have found our song
