WHEN ALWAYS I SAY

WHEN ALWAYS I SAY  
 

You posed the question, 
My dear,
What “always” means
When I say, You, 
I love.

Since 
Answer unable was 
I to give,
My soul that had spoken the word,
I asked and
Instantly 
The answer came, from
The depths of depths
Of her heart,

“By always” she said,
“This is what I mean, 
To love her: 
From dawn till dusk
From January to December
From the cradle to the grave to 
The beyond and then to
Dawn again!"

     “How Long is Your Always”

    This is great. I never thought of this before. It makes sense. I also wonder - How long is long? Thanks for sharing. Lucilla
