As ever, you remain in my thoughts as I work and play,
each and every day,
Time, space and distance conspire for us to separate,
Of these transient things I do often contemplate,
Deep in the bosom depths of my soul I dig with love's spade,
There I always find you, my heart's trusted mate,
Twilight caresses me as I stand waiting by the desolate highway gate,
The night wind chills, time slips, yet on my soul is writ an eternal date,
On the coming of the morrow mayhap we shall once again meet and eat from love's divine plate.
Thou art a fiery flamed siren
who dost sing the aria of Autumn;
To thee do I pledge my heart's love
on this, the Eve of Valentine's dreaming day.
