"I am yours,
and you are mine;
and we shall leave earth,
and make our own heaven yonder."
In the middle of all the urban noise, do you recall
the strange quietness that we found together
as we lay on the grass east of the Bethesda Fountain?
Did you, like me, close your eyes
and wish the moment would last longer?
I am yours.
And I'm incredibly humbled, grateful,
and surprised that I can call you mine.
Someday, we will leave this earth
and together make our own heaven yonder.
But in the meantime,
I treasure the heaven we've made together here.
to the one who has the ability
to make everything and everyone
around us seem still,
until only we exist.
