This Forever Union

I look
in your eyes,
in that light is inscribed
every memory of this heart...
the longing to look upon your face,
that beaming sun of life.
A moment satisfies a part of me forever
while the rest of me moves to gaze in your eyes,
to hold you now, for a night,
a day, a week, to live beside you
as you live inside of me.
No rest until this forever union
is my living now.
I sleep and awaken from a deeper dream,
where our breathing is
the embrace of The Beloved!
