A poem about the eternity of love

Let me soar and

I shall soar

To the clouds,

To the very edge of space and

Gaze down upon

This unbound earth,

This silent, gentle place, and

All the swelling of the seas and

Hem-torn land

Shall seem to me

As fresh and clear as Eden born.



Let me soar and

I shall soar

Into the dark,

Turn my head and wonder

At the stars, the million suns

Igniting life,

Kindling all the souls

Who wake and wake to dare

To hold the universe in their palms,

Cross their life-lines,

Mark the course that lays before.



Let me soar and

I shall soar

To Heaven and

See your face, God’s grace,

Shared with mortal man,

For that moment of insanity and

Vanity, that flash

Of a match in the black that was our time,

Our time, well spent,

Heaven sent, if only to pass

As light from those dying stars.


Let me go and

I shall go

To all those places we have been and

See you there,

As once were seen

The shadows we once were.

My love, my love,

Think of me

As free and

I shall soar

To the clouds, to Heaven’s door.



I shall wait for you

To live your life.

Until that time,

Our time,

Live and live some more

And take heart

From our sacred past,

Take comfort in the lifetimes yet to come,

In the flaming of our dust,

In the certainty that we’ll be found;

Two souls forever bound
