Beloved

She lived in parallel worlds,
lost, in care of others,
he fondly kept her as his companion.
The two traveled apart
to return and find each other,
the same smile, same words,
with an ever growing devotion.
He appreciated her thoughtfulness,
she was grateful he understood.
Both were honored after 28 years.

To Jeff, July 30, 1988
