...Until All the Stars Go Out

I will love you
As long as my lungs fill with air
To motivate my beating heart
To stir lifeblood through each part
Pulsating, animating there.

I will love you
As long as each new idea
Connects thought to tongue
Connects my mind along
Reasons for drawing you near.

I will love you
As long as the Earth will turn
Always to gently spin
Always a Day to begin
With you, for your love I yearn.

I will love you
Until clouds are no more
Or oceans evaporate,
Or mountains disintegrate
Into pebbles on the seashore.

I will love you
Until the constant Moon
Makes no oceans ebb and flow
Makes no continents shrink or grow,
That day will be too soon.

I will love you
Until all the stars go out
Never to give forth their light
Never to enhance the night
But blot our Eternity out…
