In life we will never meet the forest

only an occasional tree.

We will never meet the wonders beneath the sea

though some will observe the waves above.

This world is far too big for one life time

and our imagination is a poor substitute,

for things that we can never see.

We are born into a goldfish bowl

imprisoned by time,

and we share our bowl with mortals

who by chance or design

enrich the tapestry of this life

that we lead.

Our hearts will reach out for a mate

a husband, a wife, a lover

in the hope that they will see

the same stars in a sky

that looks down on mortal me

That special being

that defines the inner you,

whose spirit flies beyond

this glass of existence,

for we have nothing to hide.

And though others see despair

that this fragile glass can bring.

Remember, the glass will always age

and the winds of fortune will

always take their toll.

But this spark that we call life

will always endure

in a world with stars above,

for they have witnessed

the meaning of love before.

And in the glow of the opulent night

we will wish our dreams true

before the sandman washes them away.

And morning will bring your lips to mine

for life was given this way

And as a man and as a women

we will gather the dreams of you and me

for this is the oxygen of life,

and love is the fire, the reason to live

that burns an immortal flame

within the soul.

And should our goldfish bowl

fall off this table of life,

our love will be set free.

And the earth will grow small

In the wake of this love for you and me

Death will not dim that which we shared

For love will join the opulent night

Destined to shine forever

In this incorruptible sky.

For eternity can see the forest

and time can meet the sea,

while we shared a love

that created this world

for the world was always you

and I, was always meant

to dwell among the stars,

in a world of love,

that you created for me.
