hope against hope

day after day my heart was dying
then one night   we two met
what a night of wonder that
now I am a deathless song
just remembering you brings
sweet life to me   our hours shared
now I am an unhurried melody
a mountain leaping   singing
of the joy of knowing you
a river that hopes to flow forever
toward the sea of your smile
to the dark waves of your eyes
like those memories and that song
like that mountain and that river
this poem shall never end   never   dear love
