Thee hath open’d a path
into the depths of my soul.
A winding staircase of life,
and thee hath lighted the way.
An extra beat thine makes for you,
my heart unlocked by key.
And tho I haven’t come off cloud nine,
something sparked between thee and thine.
A small bird’s coo was heard by night,
and it sounded not of might.
But as we listen far and near,
t’was not a coo but love’s melody we hear.
For now, say I, I have to go,
To continue life’s journey through the glistening snow.
