Let's Run Away and Remember...Love

Let's run away and remember
Not how we may have failed
But how we re-learned laughter
Where love loved and prevailed
After perhaps, we stumbled
Hard-humbled by regret
When love lavished with kisses
To heal and then forget

Let's run away and remember
How, before December was
June blushed lush green with nuances
Love's sweet, fleet camoflouge
Where we, love-struck believers
Began to learn its truth
In ways stunning and foreign
To dreamers wearing youth

Let's run away and remember
Counting backwards, one by one
The April-to-September
Rendezvous through rain and sun
And let's remember just enough
Of what love should not be
To help us to remember
To love with humility

Let's run away and remember
Love; old, middle-aged, brand-new
Because, though time brings change
Love never fails; sometimes we do
Then, because love is gentle
And patient, good and kind
We forget just enough to keep
Love tender-hearted, blind


 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, 
forgiving one another, 
even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
