We laughed and loved along our path by and by.
And felt extraordinary; two hearts entwined.
The faintest scent of lavender embraced us.
Distantly, gardenias decorated, white.
A quiet interlude impassioned delight.
And our thoughts within the wind lightly soared.
As in times before, we knew love’s quiet peace.
The day thus started vanquished every sadness.
Our wildest dreams of joyfulness found birth.
And you, as every part of me, prayed to kiss.
There, beside the wall, beneath the eyes of God.
