For years to love alone with no recourse
To never vanquish coarse and shallow care,
To live with paltry tools that brought remorse
And left one only loneliness to share.
But when true love caressed myweary hand
And whispered that she too had loved alone,
Together we began to understand
That love must from a seed be fully grown.
This seed of unity we nurtured dear
As now our blossom flourishes and thrives,
To bless us with these joys that know no peer,
This sweet entanglement of lover's lives.
For truly where one stood now stands but two
To laugh and learn and live and love anew.
