These lines, this testimony

This is my testimony-
Inexorably my words fly to you
God lays faith
In your beauty, in your kindness, in your love

I open my arms and a flood pours out
I close them around you
In the place where once only echoes remained

To you, for you,
An unimaginable hymn
Known, loved, embraced
Before each syllable is spoken

Of the entwining of hands
And the souls to whom those hands belong
I sing

The universe sings through me

And as the stars circled through the night

Away I came

My hand in hers
That he might be revealed

My heart had ceased to beat
You have restored it

You have given me life
At your touch, with your hand in mine,
I am healed

This is love-
A rhythm
Pounded out
By Dragonfly’s wings
As our souls are made seamless,
As we are made

Like the brushing of fingers
Each entwined with the next

Clasped tight

This union
This combination
This new beginning
Stretching out into eternity

These lines,
This testimony
This breath that I now breathe

My very life

Is for you
