Touch of Quality

The quality of life
begins and ends
right here within
each heart that beats
the syncopated rhythm
known as love

Quantity has been
so overrated
in these days of things
and thinking's platitudes
that ignore the many moods
of heart and soul

Yet I know somehow
that this is true:
one moment of
complete, unerring love
remains the only meaning
of these lives we live

and so to give a touch
one touch completely unadorned
by time or space or history
means more to me
than fortunes made of gold
for these loving moments
flow with us
into eternity...
