Love's Flame

In the starlight we kissed heaven,
in the noonday sun we lay;
baring all our heart's intentions
never fearing what we'd say,
you stooped to find me in the twilight,
led me to the light of day.

Now we argue discontented,
not meaning most of what we mention;
darkness in our minds invented,
where is that truth we tended,
when we found the light in darkness,
freed from all that hid our way?

Hold my hand and walk on boldly,
never knowing what's in store;
for I know whatever's rendered,
all that will ever come our way,
cannot darken love's resplendence,
makes the highest mountains sway.

Speak of times, of past remembered,
in the valleys green and lush;
when we said sweetly 'I adore you'
kept safe, held true, in love,
waiting for the flowers to blossom,
before the frosts of winter came.

What was true is now and always,
sun shines on behind the clouds;
winter but a sign of springtime,
darkness just a passing shroud,
love's light is always and forever,
silent, shining, never fades.
