Three Small Stones

Three small stones
scooped from the ground
white and yellow and red

turning them over
and over again
feeling the words he said

quickly smoothly
in my pocket
not to forget this day

sacred jewels
of earths connection
when thoughts are far away

something to grasp
something to say
what did this day just mean

I’ll love you forever
he mouthed the words
no context or a ring

did he mean us never more
our love will last
not we

or was it the future
he spoke of
you and me to be

I’ll not know
the chance has gone
a moment turned to never

never to be
forgotten for
Ill keep my stones forever
