The Wedding Ring

I've heard the music a smile secretly sings
And the sudden thunder a teardrop brings
No beginning or ending round a golden wedding ring
Together love and time keep on turning

It takes but one breath to keep on living
When your dreams and sorrows become the same thing
Empty eyes open there for the forgiving
Then memories invade, night becomes morning

Like the ring we wear, no beginning or end
We search to see where this journey shall send
Apart we are halfed neither night or day
Where nothing can grow, shall it be that way?

Again Harry your comments almost make me cry...and when I saw a tear fall from the face from a man I thought had not the capability left to feel compassion its exactly what I felt. I heard my own heartbeat in my throat and felt the blood pump in my head..thunder inside me....blessings
