Love Continues to Beat the Clock

Some poetry I wrote to start the day:

A guitar drone
a cylinder pulled
from a ticking machine
reminders that time
drips and seeps between
the cracks of
eyelids drying on
to grit

The love and moments of connection we have with our family, lovers and dearest friends are alive in a timeless and eternal part of life that is beyond time. While this may be perceived as memory, I have to believe that the energy of these connections in which love is the guiding force, continues. They are moments out of time and beyond it. What we share in sincerity, honesty and love cannot be tied to a clock or calendar. We can take these memories with us to our last days and they remain as fresh and alive as the moment they blessed our lives. Time as a way to mark hours and years is relevant for a body's work, but not for spirits whose love lives on in life.

How do you see your love continuing? Do you think love is bound by time like everything else?

I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.
