Because love is about the length of a wild promise
Cast in stardust and determination
Climbing up a mountain peak
And then braided into infinity.
Because love is dreams running a marathon
Over continents tied together by anticipation
And hoping for more than it might deliver
Because love is a gale of time travel and exploration
Plus the speed of chance across a gauzy grey sky
We must carefully layer it with affectionate strokes.
