My Beloved


My Beloved

My beloved

I have heard you calling me

Calling me to you

From ancient times

Candles burning all the way

Carving a path of light

That I might find you

No matter where I have strayed

You have always been my love

I have caught your dreams

And you have captured mine

As they have come

Cascading down to thee

These flames of love

They burn like a funeral pyre

Turning the last of our old selves

To ashes

And all that remains

Buried amongst the embers

Of our past

Is you, my beloved, and me

Lost in each other

In our hearts’ abyss

Where we dare to dream

And dare to love

To depths that will endure

Eternally
