A valentine…

To be with one another forever and to have no doubt
(Nor feel exhaustion at the prospect)
Is the goal of those who, like us,
Speak in whispers through the night,
Whose one fear is of how Eternity just might
Be too short a time,
And for whom the briefest separation is a crime.

Brian Patten (from Collected Love Poems) – a superb collection.

I'd love to hear what you think!
