A clenching fist of words reached within
And tore the fibers that bound your life to mine
Alone I am ready to begin
To fill the future’s unending depth of time.
The breath that once spoke from heart to heart
Fueling flames raging in a canyon of years
Scorched the earth and drove our love apart
Escaping on a river of Memory’s tears.
But distance now has changed the view of pain
From leaving me to waste and fear and cry
To knowing that it passes as All again.
Faith renews and Love will not deny.
