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.
