The Lingering Kiss

The first kiss came
in an unscripted moment,
a spontaneous expression,
a breathless surprise.
They tested the waters that day
deciding to cast off
lines of doubt and fear,
setting sail together
into the unexplored depths
of trust.
That single kiss became
chapter one
of a long novel depicting
a life of shared commitment,
always written  
with a happy end in mind.
Little did they know then
they were also kissing
the old them
the committed them
the through thick and thin them.
These old ones were found
tested and true
through all the stuff of life.
In times of sacrifice and feasting
that first press of lips
still lingered
a reminder,
an intimate taste
of what would come
if they allowed love
to lead the way.
