To give the name

Again I take thee by the hand

In silence walk the lonely strand

Gently ruffles the breeze you sweet

The ripples, tickle my toes & feet

Our gaze is captured in the morning hue

I feel a movement inside you

Inside you shines a growing name

A child begins, like the burning flame

Of love, we found on a starlit night

The moon shone high, the dew was light

We kissed and red your lips spoke soft

Of who and where and when and off

I listened deep,

I heard you sing

I saw a star, a shining ring

Of light, it flashed across that night.

To light our flame

To show that heaven unites

Again & again & again

This universal moment true

A child

The magic of just me and you.
