Hallowed ground

I grow our love on hallowed ground
water it with frequent tears

we listen to the thud of open hearts
turn to murmur latent love songs

I grow our love with careful hands
tend with whispers, soft throated beats

and there is nothing that I would not give
and there are no words for what you mean to me.

I look in your eyes with each sunrise
watch the light raise dapples on our sheets

and when the blood red sunset creeps
bringing endless night and eternal sleep

my love for you will always be
buried in the earth of hallowed ground,

in this time, this place, this infinity.
