A Valentine's Poem

                        love builds

for humans all

a temple of purest thoughts

where hope’s dreams

become real

where time remains young

through passing years

where then’s lonely nothingness

is replaced with now’s heavenly fullness

where blackened, starless death

becomes divine, sunny life

where immortality

on earth

becomes reality—

in heaven

no longer necessary

where earth holds forever

within its power

where in combined

past, present, and future

we two,

at least

can live
