I’ll never say good-bye
never leave your side,
no matter where you are in the world.
I shall hold onto
with all my passionate strength,
the only woman who loved me for me.
My one shooting star
on the black satin night canvas,
one brilliant moment of romantic intimacy.
Together we shall rise
above the pain of a frenzied world,
in an embrace. . . of sheer calming grace.
We are as eternal as time,
never to say farewell even after death,
when we shall walk hand in hand in true love.
Timothy Michael DiVito c2021
