They lived a long time together.
They grew old together - they died.
Few to say “good-bye” - to see what they had become.
They drifted together in their own dreams
chasing their own stars
face to face with Angels.
Their together hearts filled with resplendent love
growing beyond the reach of others
who may have observed but they never understood.
Alone together - only children and this song sings
that they were ever here.
Lovely she fell first, alone he died - together again.
