Love's Everlasting Endurance - Poem by Bill Darrah
'Let her want with me be in creating my need to express
the love I share-love's intimacy can only adequately give.'
I couldn't even hear my heart beat.
Now I know what I was cheating
Was the part of my being
That was so unbelieving
Of the love that blocked my seeing
The lonely part of my heart she was relieving
Through the smile of every greeting
Like while we were eating
And all the times of unexpected meeting
When we stopped and stared intriguingly
As if we had perfected the incredible feat
That saved the world to retreat
To the love that would ultimately entreat
Every single human being
To hear the heart constantly beating
As feeling keeps on repeating
The love that refuses to retreat completely.
