Lovers’ Rift (poem)

Updated on April 1, 2015

Believe in timeless moments such as this

Where one by one each heartbeat ticks away

And scents so near have so much more to say

Entwined in vines of tender love we drift


And not a breath of wonder do we miss

The air we bare becomes a special tune

Whose memory in time will make us swoon

And call us back into this lovers’ rift


Believe that never flows through this abyss

How could forever move bliss from its sight

Together we add meaning to the light

Believe and feel our world begin to shift


Let’s bless what we believe in with a kiss

For could there be a far more fitting gift
