Embracing Their Lives

A boy and a girl in love, 
hugging beneath starlit trees, 
like spirits enjoined by God, 
race to forever.

Shadows moving like the wind
decorate the ground with shapes
dancing beneath the moonlight
silhouettes of trees.

Branches twisted together 
awakening the sunlight
sparkling like young lovers
embracing their lives.
