Villanelle – Both of a Kind

You both would have been the kind to sit
down together your rest, your only reward,
when you had done all that you could not to quit.

When life had delivered the hardest of hits
you were not the type to plead to your Lord;
you both would have been the kind to sit

together until you had a plan, and that is it
the way you intended on moving ever forward
when you had done all that you could not to quit.

You walked together on a path that was not lit
but you never lost your way or failed to take record
as you both would have been the kind to sit

…and wait, together

You both avoided along the way each trap and pit
as you tied together all you loved with your familial cord
when you were doing all you could not to quit,

because you shared your time together like a precious gift
accepting only what you had, without ever getting bored.
You, who were both of a kind that liked to sit, together
as reward for doing all that you had and never quit.

Additional Poems

Cinquain – Their Love

They were
together, then
life separated them
but even now their love endures
and grows.

Senryu – Love

Love was their answer
any questions asked in life
only one answer.

Triolet – Together

They chose to be together
because their love was strong
They stood strong in any weather
They chose to stand together.
Their earthly bond was severed
but their love goes on and on.
They chose to be together
because their love was strong.

Haiku – The Leaves That Leave

Do trees love their leaves
even when they cast them off?
Do trees remember?
