Sacred recitation
From the sinking lips.
Agile stream of love
Faithfully vibrates
Its content
And intimate meaning.


Memories are preserved
In the tiny pebbles
Of the meandering flow.
Songs of love scintillate
On the colourful edge
Of the living span.
The caring warmth
Of our creation
Nurtures us to rest
In the evening hours.


Our love is a ceaseless
Melodious celebration,
Our love is the lamp
And we are its brightness,
Our love is a song
And we are its rhythm.
