I wish

I wish, my love.
Knowing this as you do.

That life persists in waves of joy and sorrow, melting hearts to tears
and day by day expanding with laughter or with laments receding.

When all is weighed and said and done, take this from me, my dear:
be thou loved with such passion that outlasts proud time itself.

With such conviction that endures all demon doubt, be thou loved,
and trust to one truth above all else: that life was meant for this.

For us. To love.
And be loved.
