Two love birds


Two love birds:
Singing together,
Perching together,
Roaming together.

Two love birds:
Seeing each second,
Floating each minute,
Drooping each hour.

Two love birds:
Nesting together,
Slumbering together,
Brooding together.

Two love birds:
Eating each second,
Drinking each minute,
Chirping each hour.

Aye, two love birds! :
Not dying together.

    Two beautiful souls sharing the physical plane of existence together. But in the
    grander scheme of eternal life each individual re-enters the fold but still remains
    within the singularity, or the masters plan. I love the way you have written this
    one..... very powerful........and loving
