It makes my heart truly happy,   

to know the love we share,               

to feel our hearts set soaring,

to see our hearts laid bare.

Forever to love you in the now, in the then,

forever free to embrace you, as a lover and dear friend.

Blessed assurance – as our feelings soar, to thrive,

fabled emotions, our hearts twin rhythms of life.

Your love burns more deeply – than any hot iron could sear, convey,

our hearts ever healing oer brands of burning spate.

My love, my darling, sweet hope, my most dear,

Forever sweet beloved – surrendered hearts in wonderous abandon.

Thy Swain

Steven R. Harrel to his lifelong Sweetheart, Pamela
