We met in Heaven and  hung in freedom

Laying in fields of clover and joy

Just thoughts and unable to express our love

You were wonderful and I called you Beauty


God met with us and readied

You will go where I send and wait

I had forgotten you until prayer

It was then I heard you calling


I saw you in my dreams and danced again

Tried to recall but there were no answers

I picked you and you picked me

But it was cloudy there


Your eminence diminished and the shining

We promised to wait until GOD sent his signal

And I waited at the crossroad

My lovely came to me and whispered

Well met

I saw you walking across the lawn

You caught me and the photos

My heart was full and the snapping and flash

I remembered and thanked God

My lovely

The wedding came and love

The rice was thrown but you

Always you and your warm hands

The heart which I waited took


We were well met

But we had to go our separate

It wasn't convenient

Silently and moving

Love was placed in the freezer


Return to me

Our love can be thawed

We can baste and nurture

You bring the best of me


And the leaves crushed

Water boiling and rolling

Only the finest China

We were freshly brewed
