Sonnet 106

For how do I embrace the coming dark
With lightened heart and equanimity?
My greatest fear, we two shall ever part
And loving bonds be lost eternally.
What truth still lives in dreams of ever after;
What proofs exist beyond the here and now?
How sad the fading echoes of our laughter
When from our breasts all loving breath shall flow?
Then let us dance within the present light,
And let us drink our wine and eat our bread;
And may your beauty never stray my sight,
And may we couple daily ’til we’re dead.
You are my love, my light, my living bliss…
And I’d forsake sweet heaven for just one kiss.
