Divine Union

our love is real, my darling
what holds us together
through absence and longing
and brief bouts of doubt

is the truth of our story…

our hearts are joined; our souls entwined
our bodies have parted, but not for long
they’re writing our song
and when it’s writ
the Harmony of Us
will become one

our dream is deeper than the stars
yet more real than the Earth and the seas
and the moon that moves the tides
in an endless caress of her shores

they do this dance
in whispered trance,
the sound of their love
the only sound they hear

that’s their harmony
wait until they hear ours

not even Adam and Eve
could conceive
of such perfect harmony
of meant to be
like you and me
