All I hear is your name

repeated softly inside me,

constantly reminding me

of your presence

in my heart.

All I see is your face

through many moods and

through many seasons.

Your eyes, dearly loved

whether upon me

or upon the distance,

the fires within

burns, mellow and strong.

All I know is my continuing


that through our

separate times

and interwoven hours,

this love between us

binds us together

with threads made of joy.

All I want is to be with you

when the world runs down

and at our life’s end

to look back

over the chain of days behind

and the forever beyond

and know our love is eternal.
