Love is Forever

In a world where hearts open and doves fly out
I'll ask "Take my hand, dance with me forever"
Motion creates motion, always fluid sensual
Floating in a realm of space from a word
Spinning faster and faster, as time becomes small
While passion the connecting thread, weaves the dance

As we cross the floor of time in rhythmic dance
Movement brings its own pace, as it plays out
While time pushes motion, becoming small
Turning minutes into dreams that seem forever
Two hearts search for the softest word
And a world once gray turns red, sensual

The warmest moments cling, they become sensual
And the need to be loved the calling dance
Understanding so gentle comes from a poetic word
Creating emotion that keeps loneliness out
As lovers, we shall worship truth, forever
And emptiness once felt becomes small

Love is a universe that never grows small
It contains the deep oceans of the sensual
Where the horizons stretch on forever
And the lovers there reflect their dance
This moment of beauty pushes darkness out
And they write in their heart a gentle word

Like a slender shaft of light from a written word
Reveals the plummage worn by a pain turned small
Closely arranged until its lines fade out
From the mind and emotion of the sensual
When the hand was taken to begin the dance
And the fullness of love, now seems forever

Though yearning and dreams can want forever
They align parallel on life's hidden word
And give life and color to this dance
Carried away from a past now small
To the arms of a lover, most sensual
As each breath comes faster, releasing out

The length of forever leaves life ever small
As words from a poem strokes the heart so sensual
Making the dance last, until final breath is out
