Unexpected Tumbles in Life

some things we never grow tired of
like sunsets, the smell of fresh baked bread
deep romantic kisses, aha ideas at just the right time
and rousing conversations with friends
we feel so alive at these times

and then, there are those moments
when life seems to stop…

like when you questioned
my right to happiness, and
you doubted my good intentions

even what we love the most
can’t save us from these unexpected tumbles
