A Lasting Love

A lasting love securely sustains dreams.
Respect and adoration, the hallmark,
Our hearts united cherish loves esteems.

Meandering as one beneath moonbeams.
Souls unified and strengthened on love's ark
A lasting love securely sustains dreams.

Enduring love remembers, so it seems.
To join hurt-selves together, brighten dark.
Our hearts united cherish loves esteems.

The sparkle in each soul reflects sunbeams.
Consideration bound to each remark.
A lasting love securely sustains dreams.

Although at times our senses meet extremes,
An angry word will seldom find its spark.
Our hearts united cherish loves esteems.

In concert, we are wandering life's streams.
Together, firmly trussed through life's embark.
A lasting love securely sustains dreams.
Our hearts united cherish loves esteems.
