WWW#4 – Valentine Special – Text #2

Valentine’s Gift Basket
by B.

I wish love was simple and set,
But it is not. It is a quest.

A personal trial,
Nothing short of a contest,
Starring not only you,
But all the best.
People you joyfully greet in
All sit this test.
Consciously or unwillingly
They all fall into the casket.
Forming life’s most mysterious puzzle
Each one a timely guest, a dream caressed
Adding an intricate bustling piece
To this lifelong rule-bending test
Emerging feelings, surprising plans
Daily reassessed enter this treasured chest
Piling up stories – tragic, happy, costly, worthy –
Memories impressed
Upon you
Drawing life’s unrest.
Until one day, it all makes sense – or none at all –
Still, you are impressed.
You are asked to this date, and by both,
Wordlessly guessed,
Explicitly confessed,
Undying love is professed.
