The Test of Time

the test of time
born of man's mind
that would hold and contain
all the love that remained

love alive is in the flow
of give and take - allowing growth
of heart and mind, the body, soul
making room for other whole

to touch and blend and back away
yet leaving room for them to stay
moment by moment, choice upon choice
rhythm of movement to make us rejoice

in freedom granted, earned in the dance
of giving, receiving, and taking a chance
by opening the heart to see
eternal love is feeling free

free of the burdens that duty entails
free to roam the woods and trails
free to leave, and free to return
in freedom of air, the fire burns

and as the days and nights extend in space
to feel the flow of love within the grace
that brought two souls together here
to love, inspire, and draw near

the threads that now begin to interweave
within two hearts that truly can believe
the deepest love is in the letting go
that the stream of life, enriched, will ever flow
