Distant Hearts

In the quiet of the night
drums beat in the distance
and seem to draw near
with the dawn

while the dream lives on
in rhythm syncopated
with the heartbeat of the earth
while all the living worth
of patterns' forms
dares again and again to be born

Inspiration in the theme
of timelessness within the dream
while lovers touch though far away
and love into another day
moving in the motion of the beat
of distant hearts that live as one

and there, the sun
breaks o'er the peaks
extending into endless nights
of sweet delight
when flesh to flesh we meet
within the rhythm and the beat
of night
