come my Darling - pass through the portal
hold me - dance with me...
the candles are flickering
now is the time
kiss me my Sweet - you carry the scent
of roses and cinnamon...
I have loved you since the beginning
the destination of all endings
listen Sweet Love - do you hear the wind?
say hello to the little loves of the woods
and the forests - they too
are calling your name
they too wish for your embrace...
Dear Lover - let us call out the names
of those who whisper to us as we sleep:
Grace and Frank, Edith and Walter, Doreen and Boone,
Jeanne and Mikey and the tiny buds whose names
call them and all the others
to this celebration
let us all dance together
laughing and telling stories
knowing that we have never been apart
of beginnings and endings...
