a paradox too lovely to forgo

(my first poem reposted- Nov 17th 2009)

.

love takes away their breath

yet in that fatal breathlessness

they find life

like a lily blooming in winter

I relish in your cocoon

the sweet smell of scented petals

garnishing my thoughts

for I know I will never wilt

and dews will never form

only frozen in time

with you..
