Written for my brother's wedding. Any and all comments always gratefully received.
No Greater Gift
you stepped from the ledge, and
uncaught by gravity,
fell toward the stars.
Together, yours is grace so beautiful
it stops wind and tide.
Choose each day to love each other, hushed
as your embrace,
wild with passion,
hard as lightning and soft
as sweet scented sun.
Plunge into the deep where
journey meets end, and
roots intertwine in dark earth,
unmoving, ancient, connected,
seismic and powerful,
for this is the nature of Love.
Through years of paradise and pain,
Live and know,
as long as you have life and breath
you have each other, and
there is no greater gift.
