The Promise

Your hand intertwined with mine.

Butterflies flew by as I momentarily forgot to breath.

I waited a lifetime for this moment.

I will wait another, some other day,

For now, I take your hand you offer,

And walk along with you.

Companionably. Sometimes in silence.

Other times in humor. Enjoying what may feel brief,

Our times we keep. I was you in my sleep.

You guide me through the very deep.

God, as one, I walk with thee.
