When reason called us in its pattern
We obeyed as if entranced or certain
Marched in habit to its power beat
Never guessed that we might meet.
Brushing together now, again
Chills run through me thrill my skin
Each seed a doubt for rationality
Just partners, friends, maybe family?
Now I lay awake in thoughts of strife
I’ve brought you home to meet my life
This passing dream now manifest
And we planned to get some rest?
Our journey over so we thought
Each a plan ahead won’t be forgot
Still for you and me there’s more
My heart entangled all in your.
Silence feelings deep, lest we miss what is so near
Hold each moment, strands of time see them clear
Believe, be strong we have the stage
Co-write our story page by page.
As like a falling star, its trail so bright
Frames your profile, dazzling night
Fragrances of spring, sweet so brief
Shall we freeze them ever etched in mind’s gold leaf?
One candle burning brighter, it’s reflection
Of your spirit feeds pure rays of sun
Kneeling, gazing up in awe, at glass and beams
Was this cathedral’s magic, made it more than seems?
Sparkling eyes ignite your smile with fire
Touching accidentally shivers shimmer
Breathless then, I still recall
And wonder we together after all.
Emotion like a bird’s song heard at dawn
Upon our hill, our moment cannot be withdrawn
We saw the angel overhead, a smile to bless
Signs and mystery lead or follow, no dismiss
We are bound, now our fate we cannot contain
Savoring ever, running back, pulses pounding in the rain
Trying to draw in deeply, hiding each to calm.
Our beating hearts, they chant our psalm.
Now we loyal return to our commitment
Their bonds, our honor, until now content
Yet sharing each so much ignites
Inspired light, a vision for the nights.
If we are to wrong, right has no say
Yet others hurt may sue that day
Powerless we heard the call, demanded to be heard
This chance unplanned, wisely we deferred.
For now I only ask you not say no
And in return these words will grow
Filling pages, books with loving petal
Trunks of longing holding silent your recital.
Alongside saddened notes and songs yet done
Both will be our destiny, love will mend what has begun
Spreading roots of passion deep
As nectar feeds, this love can never sleep.
Though not yet, I like to think we are
Partnered spirits, connecting from afar
A fate apart, yet faithful in our time
Our moment sublime, we wait for two to rhyme.
Now make no plan, dreaming there might be
A future time, our stars will watch to see
Our song of longing always there, our starlight in the day
Lay me now with thee to sleep and carry me away.
