Forever and a Day

Love Story (version III)

I love you once
when the sky was blessed
by stars too new to shine

We walked, 
you and I,
hand in hand with abandon
down a lane that existed
without a concept 
of Sin

We were united there
in these pagan rites,
Nameless,
immortal beloveds
in form & thought

And now in finite flesh,
these sheets bereft of your scent,
I endure the endless hours
of night
without your love
to keep me warm

So I vow to follow
you into eternity:
Forever and a Day.
