First Anniversary

I wanted to keep the door ajar
But today it closed on the memory path
Where sight, sound and touch
Can be jotted into last year's mark.

Yet what is time, beyond the door
Memories linger just as before.
For what count days or the years that pass
But a gentle covering on a love that  lasts
