Nowhere else my heart can be found


Nowhere else my heart can be found
as you are my true beloved
and still we remain sheltered in each other
although the worst destroying winds of life do blow

and even when the cold days of winter come in the cycle of life,
when the strength of youth runs into the days of old age,
our love remains rock steady in each other,
while daily I am astounded by your beauty and humanity,

and it’s still as if God does determine our lives,
is the writer of our own story
and in the cold nights we lie together
when the days of shadow linger

but still I do wonder why I had to wait a lifetime,
to have you in every night and day?
