Secrets of our Souls

Spread the love

The winter winds had wrapped my soul;
Took a chance when things were unclear.
To home plate we took but a stroll;
We spoke no louder than a whisper.

You are my life, my love and heart;
I willed myself to say these words.
Whether work together or far apart;
Hand in hand as light as birds.

And suddenly time just ceased – it stopped
He looked at me like never before.
I stared in awe my jaw had dropped;
He whispered now and evermore.

Perhaps there is magic far above;
For heaven itself descends in love.
