We must have shared a dream last night
as we walked hand in hand, you and I,
for our connection endured even as our
street melted away into the night’s sigh.
Our feet followed soft earth to a forest’s edge.
Among the susurrant voices of the trees, this to
you I pledge: I will hold your heart forever in
mine, because you are what makes my world shine.
As we began to watch the stars align, a venerable
Oak sent us home on tomorrow’s wind. Upon it
rode our laughter because we knew our love would
go beyond the hereafter.
