Softly and tenderly

We tell one another
We have and do
Always will
Love one and another
Forever till
Death do we part

I will catch a hint of smile
Leftover from a lover
Warm myself by it
Like a bedside candle flame
Bright orange
Thank their souls
For loving us so well

Mine is an evergreen
Glint in my eye
That turns to the sky
Drink in her memory
Crossing snow-covered peak
Parade lest it fade
Love is applied daily
Soaking in more than skin deep

She reads me well
That faroff look
Still dances with you alone
Silence falls our music plays
On repeat
