I sit here beside you
where the candles flame flickers upon the wall
The moments rush to fast it seems
for all I want to say and show
That the expression within your eyes
cries back deep upon my own
little consistencies of knowing
that travels the roots of our being
and here in the silence where we lay
Speaks the volumes of centuries.
The words that long to carry
the dreams that fill so the mind and heart
to a story that upon itself
holds and travels far
Between the continents of you and I.
Our roads are not so different
Our grounds so much the same
Its these little metaphors of expression
that gathers you within my arms to fly,
reach and touch the bewildering moment
That hangs upon the air between our sigh.
that no matter what comes or goes
our eyes have met, held the reality of our being
and expressed most profoundly
The want within our souls.
