As Ever

by rspoet

Dedicated to my wife.

As Ever
Shall I, in jest, attempt to snare a star
And set its torch within a ring of gold
To offer you a diamond from afar
Whose light of love forever will enfold.
Perhaps I’ll seize the summer’s solar blaze  
And meld its fire inside a narrow band
That you may know the joy of heaven’s rays—
A prize of splendor placed upon your hand.
Yet all these fiery gifts could ne’er convey
A heart as full as autumn’s harvest moon.
I’ll gather gentle beams upon their way
To bind our love within an ancient rune.
As long as heaven’s orb illumes the sky
So too, my love, our flame will never die.
