Love Poem: To the Ends of the Earth

To the Ends of the Earth

I penned a thousand lullabies 'bout you

          Yet your lashes closed, tender

     To the ends of those songs ...

You whispered sacred secrets to my name

          Tied bright bows of dalliance

     To the ends of each breath ...

Deep in your eyes my wand'ring soul resides

          For I followed them homeward

     To the ends of the earth.
