Did You Not Know?

You are the light from a distant star

The warm hug of nature

You are a smile that lights the moon

And gives the night to lovers

You are the loftiest of dreams come true

Promises kept

A child’s laughter

You are the rising tide of passion

You are the soft hands of love

The firm grip of caring

You free the spirit that

Creates the music

The Dance

The rhythm

The steps

The walk

And the poetry of life

You fill the silence

Quiet fear

Your diamond thoughts

Heart of gold

And river of compassion

Lift me up

Did you not know?

I love you so

And always will

Even when my mind forgets

And my body turns to ashes

All that I think I am is

A moment in time that passes
