It Merely Sleeps

As two twining roses before a chilling frost
Did cling in their summer waning solace
So we must be, though storms blow us apart
The roots of such love are grown together

A heady scent floats upon the warming breeze
The sunset is a fire that cannot be put out
It merely sleeps the night and rises with the dawn
This love endures, beyond comprehension

There is no beginning or end, it is, it was, it will be
Grains of sacred sand blow on an endless plain
The winds of desire sending them to all places
Whirlwinds offering a holy, eternal joining

Roses root and grow in every clime and corner
Sending shoots of promise and glory before them
Trailing a glow that we followed before us
Bringing your soul and mine together at last.
