Keeping The Flames

There is no invoice issued
For the heart that you have stolen
For there is no price enough
For the love that blossoms here
In the presence of this robust energy
That settles to a constant simmer
That keeps the veins of adoration warm
In the glow of caring mutual respect
And little actions that replace all words
There is a long time burn that grows comfortable
And sometimes the fires need a stoking
A small reminder of how they first were lit
For in the rush of living the life we have made
We may forget to remember one another
And take for granted that the other knows
That we still do love them every single day
So perhaps we need to take a moment
A respite from all the needs that need doing
To tell them from the certainty of our own lips
That our love for them still singes all our thoughts
And we are happy to be with them
After all this time has passed
