Still Crazy in Love

Still Crazy in Love spans the crazy romantic adventure of four decades living with Linde Waidhofer. An adventure that hasn't stopped, maybe never will.
No longer raining, no longer even night,
But not yet day, dawn light spreading
Across the sky, trying for a rosy pink.
Way off west, at cloud cluttered horizon,
The full moon falls off the edge of the sky
Slipping down behind shadow peaks
The moon path rolled up and put away
Our lake now waiting for its share of color
Our lake? Why not? Our sky. Our moon.
Our memories of other moons, memories
Of other memories falling off the edges
Of other skies, other years, other lovers
Also called Lito and Linde, with their own
Memories of other Litos and Lindes,
Memories tumbled into the dusty closet
Beneath the edge of the sky. How many?
How many years ago did we meet?
How many wake-up kisses, cups of coffee?
Questions without answers, too many
To count, no need to count, no time
To spend with memories, today is waiting
And we're still here, still together,
Still looking for beauty, still finding it,
Still crazy in love.
