“Between Two Worlds”
Though heaven’s place is grace-filled for the soul,
my heart still hovers, halting, near this earth.
Unless you, only love , were there to hold,
my courage dare not leap beyond this berth.
My life has need for your familiar ground.
I want no more than comfort from your kiss.
You are the warming soul my arms surround.
A quiet bliss; I want no more than this.
If other orbs contain such shining light
seen glowing from the depth of your kind eyes,
then bravely I might take that unknown flight
to worlds where I still hear your gentle sighs.
For now, my cautious heart must harbor here
where you, my love, are heaven to be near.
