Ends That Meet

Now all seems lost
what is the cost
of love?

Can it last
through the pain of the past
and live on?

Can I be that strong
suspended between right and wrong
and finally know
the freedom of the endless flow

accepting every variation
of the theme of love's completion
even when the chords become undone
and chaos ends what we'd begun

in faith and honor and commitment
and now begins the steep descent
for the laws of gravity will tell
of all that was risen and fell

yet they speak not of return
or of the fire that burns
endlessly within two hearts
that love

while now within the afterglow
I sense an upward movement, flow
as a cycle becoming complete
will turn the bend and finally meet
