Translating Love

 
I canít find the words for happiness
Apart from beginning with the thought of you
As contentions are outlasted
And I learn to breathe again

The world fades into the backdrop
And yet finds a whole new sense of vibrancy all at once
Surprise endings in a twist of fate
As roses bloom in the night
And every day is a developing photograph
As we invert the negatives of shadow

We turn out black holes and call life out of the void
Like stars reignited in the sky
What is darkness but Godís canvas for fragments of beauty
As distant lights speak of a day in waiting

Time is building momentum
As I budget hopes for moments on reserve
Love isnít a falling but an intention
An aim taken, and a choice made perpetually
The being of constancy beyond emotion
Who we choose to be towards each other

Fadeless against the tides
Of all that aims to erode connection
Knowing is contending and deepens upon discovery
Worth backed by the intrinsic value of a promise
Follow through to establish trust
When value is known for what is done
And what is said holds weight
When it is proceeded by reputation

What we do is the blood in the veins
Of our best or worst intentions
As deed is the breath in the lungs
Of how we write ourselves on paperÖ
