We sit side by side,
hand in hand,
looking out at the world from our vantage of love.
Companionable silence, deep conversation,
dreams of what we hope will be.
We have been through such raw life, you and I,
so much laughter and tears, joy and sorrow.
No matter what the future brings, it will find us together,
hands clasped tight,
looking out in the same direction, souls inextricably entwined.
When the day arrives that we are naught but the dust of stars,
we will still whisper words of love,
echoing through all eternity.
To Dan…my love.
