Two As One

Sniffles, sneezes, 
lovers wheeze, their breathing shallow, 
sorrow now invests their meager fold; 
gaslight bubbles, curtains flutter, 
cold insinuates and takes a hold. 

Misery, but wait, a spark, 
a glimmer, and a faith unfurled, 
for melodies from unseen places, 
voices of a host of angels rise to recreate a world 
where hope was lost and joy extinguished. 

Music from a higher sphere 
will permeate their still-born hearts, 
repopulate their barren souls, 
give credence to that well-flung dart 
that makes two halves a whole.
