I will always love you

A hot dusty day was coming to a close as we

Lay down in the field to count the stars. The

Sun had only just set so we watched and we

Waited until presently owl light shooed the day

Away and as each star came out we made a

Wish and with every wish a kiss, a soft beautiful

Love-drenched kiss, so deep so passionate I

Shed a secret tear not for you to see but for my

Heart to feel should I ever lose you


Under a blanket of stars I found

Your soft yielding mouth ready to surrender to

Love. Your eyes met mine, your arms folded

Around me and as our lips met the world and

Its worries were lost in a lover's canopy of

Midnight blue

The air as sweet as wine as a lazy late-rising

Moon slowly yawned its way skyward and in its

Light you and I somewhat spent, somewhat

Grassy, yet wonderfully at peace

'Do you love me?' you asked 'I will always love

You' I replied. 'I am nothing without you.'

'Did my pounding heart not tell you?'

'I love you more than you will ever know and

When the sands of time finally run out there

Will be a grain of time sealed and saved forever

In amber patiently waiting so that should time

Ever begin again its origins and its cry through

Newly expanding space will be one of love

My love for you'

'Do I Love you?' 'Always my love, always'
