Love

He saw in her eyes

What he saw in sunrise;

A spark of light, of life anew.

And he saw in her smile

What he saw in the moon;

A reflection of his own light

As it grew!

———

Oh, to be young and ancient hearted;

To be free and shackled so;

To be a ship on seas uncharted;

To venture to and fro.

———

She saw in his laugh

A thousand years

Of joy and hope and happy tears.

She saw in his hands

A gentleness;

On his lips, her own:

A kiss.
