We have been favored,
in the beginning,
challenged, towards the end

so in love from the first
chance meeting,
as if we had wings
we had magic
and chemistry
intense like a supernova
making mad abandon
sound like a good idea
and all the world
to take on and conquer

now we have
but legs to dance
and schedules and budgets
to dance around
a rushing madness by day
a finiteness by night
and matching scars on our arms
from fights and sacrifices
and differences
to many victories,
bare survivals and escapes

proofs we are neither
angels nor heroes nor gods
but ordinary people in love
who need a little help sometimes

but this world
is still ours
