KEPT ALIVE

Time preserved in antique space
dimension holding hours, days and nights
embraced to seal a vow, kept alive
in mystic memory, spiritual symbol
life’s accumulation of sensations
weight of ballast in the mind, its meaning
yet to be revealed, hands held across
the years, words repeated in beams of light
from communication satellites, hopes undimmed
in spite of contradictions, vibrant emotion
notes, tones, chords, harmoniously formed
love’s periodic, all complimentary motion
sustained since, some revelatory admission.
