Their Life in Love

In gifts that given are

The wishes of two children on a star

And then into the light

Another joyful medley black and white

 

To try their strength at last

And leave the sorrowed bed-clothes of their past

To watch the years unroll

To touch inside but leave the other whole

 

The sometimes-coming joy

In playful words that tease but don’t destroy

The often uphill track

With loving hands to soothe an aching back

 

So many different things

It takes to keep a love within the rings

For love is what love does

That’s all there is, and all there ever was
