The Burning Match

Sweethearts of pain
But they find love
On salty seas
Under stars above

Into his eyes
She stares so deeply
His waiting arms
She melts completely

Her heavy heart
Begins to swell
Oh secret lies
To ever tell

These few moments
An eternity
For them all
There could ever be

In his eyes
Her only world
In her smile
The perfect pearl

His tender fingers
Her body touches
Her love torn soul
His rapture clutches

With panting breaths
And willing tears
Their lifelong truths
And aging years

A long-lost fire
Lights the dark
The burning match
Finds its spark

Her lovely mind
Becomes his home
Inside his heart
She is never alone
