I Weep (Not)

It seems as though with passage
of blooming years, my tears have
dried, surging o’ heart with cheer.
You are sunshine gold streaming
past porpoise skies ―

I weep not nor hold dear inward
moan, you are hope o’ belief as
roses succeed showers of snow.
In euphonious tones, our souls
(afire) now breathe as one.

    Ah! This maturity comes with the experience of what all life entails and in the end, the tears perhaps have to be kept hidden. And when souls breathe as one, I don’t think that anyone could ever want more than that.
