From there on to eternity,
rare palette of notes in my mind.
A herald of love’s prophecy
that’s there to hear, yet hard to find
Sustained by a refrain so strong,
the melody, too real to fade.
A whispered, emotional song,
every hour and day, always played
A distant place not long ago,
born of love, a symphony there.
Yearning for a sweet crescendo,
in time, I pray, somehow, somewhere
