our lives are stitched from suture to suture
into a quilt made of past, present and future

the lives we have led make up our psyche
and what it has taught us can tell whether we

have a recipe with all the ingredients
to be one with it all, not just be expedient

we’ve grown, you and i, together and apart
share a love for one another, until death do us part

and when we move on to the next life’s stage
we’ll always have something from which to gauge

for love is eternal, has no beginning, has no end
always it shall be, these divine thoughts we shall send
