in the space of a sigh
forever – a moment
can stretch to become
our one evermore
and all the days left
in the getting back home
would be lost to the face
as a place we remain –
when the night washes silk
into warm morning sun

what if days had been shorter
in the passing between –
or shadows held tighter
a little more us
lips where kisses still linger
in believing (in knowing)
love’s grace

might eternity fade
to the one we remember –
a name never spoke
into fullness of life
when given the sunset
a reminder of leaving –
tis always for love

the reason
we stay
