Inside the human heart there burns a fire,
Dispelling darkness, showing souls the way,
To buoy up spirits that they never tire
On their sweet passage through life’s mortal fray.
Fond visions shared stay ever shining bright,
Harsh burdens borne by two are less the more;
Dark sorrow twained seems half the less by light,
Twinned happiness like wings, best set to soar.
The storied worth of joy is rare of one
As smiles begetting smiles are quick to show,
The living song of life more clearly sung
When harmonized in tender timed rondo.
No greater gift to man from God above
Than hearts conjoined in timeless, endless love.
