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.
