Our Story


Forever and always I have loved you,
     Whether underneath the hollow moonlight
Or by the ringing bells of broad daylight;
     Forever and always I have sought you.

Like two streams that meet in the forest deep
     And renewed in strength rush on together,
Ever heedless of contrary weather,
     We have raised our souls from a vacant sleep.

No longer single from when first we met,
     I found both lonely road and hearth in you.
You have been both a comfort and all new;
     I know our story is not finished yet.
