"Love's Metaphor"

MG (For Rob)

Just like the Redwoods, sturdy... strong.
A soft, northern breeze, hums our song.
And like the waves caress the shore,
Unceasingly return for more,
So is our love, so solid... deep,
And ever constant... ours to keep,
Protect and cherish starting now,
And ending not. Sealed with a vow.
So if you find yourself one day
Among those Redwoods far away
You must recall love's metaphor.
And if your feet do touch the shore,
Please take a moment. Reminisce
The ocean's depths and true love's kiss,
And know that you have true love known.
For once, for always. Breathe. Be home.
