Companion

Four years

Sipping cask wine

Basking in fading light

Celebrating our isolation

After decades of stress

Each day promising

Something new

Spontaneity guiding us

A coin flip for North or South

My darling

You have aged with the grace

Of a balmy night breeze

Remember that December

We had Christmas

In a forest

No tinsel or gifts

Just a river

Just our skin

Travel with me further

To the edge of life

For I will always be

Your companion

And the road will

Always be our home

Until the fuel runs out
