Rejuvenation


What a miracle to see you fresh again
after an eternity of some tumultuous decades
of divorces, dramas, traumas and upheavals
all reduced to nothing in an instant,
since you were so totally unchanged,
as if our forty years by some strange miracle
were reduced to but a moment's time
out of eternity, at once returning to our youth
and giving us a new eternity and lifetime of no end.
How shall I handle this new totally surprising love
so generously brought by fate and fortune
undeserved and unexpected but the more sincerely welcome
for its heavenly and overwhelming grace
that must completely fill me up
with boundless joy and energy and a new life
for you, my love, our common memories
and all those friendships that we shared together?
Stay by me, and don't desert me once again,
our divorce was much too long and all too painful
to bear any repetition and to be supported or endured
since we have been through far too much already
not to finally deserve each other.
