Once upon the nights, when we were young together,
That time it was when fear remembered it had its eyes to open, stalking us,
In whispers we unfurled to each other, boundless conversations that were really, secrets in the dark
Then in the luster of morning, when sunlight had come over our faces,
It was not shame we felt looking at each other.
It was this intrepid dawning, that through all of your mistakes and mine,
We might despite all; thread this life together, until the night came upon,
When it would be my last, or maybe yours.
