20th Anniversary Sonnet

The time we met, like yesterday, and yet

So many years did fall like Autumn leaves

In late November, colored like sunset,

My heart is filled with joy and yet it grieves.

Too fast, too fast!  Tomorrow comes to fast!

And yesterday becomes a distant dream.

I try to hold these moments of the past!

They slip away and down time’s lonely stream.

“But don’t despair!” I tell my heart.  For love

Cannot be lost!  The cosmic spheres with all

Their vast expanse, that stretch from heav’n above,

To love’s eternal glory, short they fall.

And time is but a temporary thing

Your love ascends beyond time’s bitter sting
