Love’s Connection


I believe in love’s connection

Though you are far from sight

I feel you in my heart by day

And in my dreams at night


This isn’t something solid

Not something that I can show

Just a sensation in my being

A confidence, that I just know


Your voice is in the ocean breeze

Whispering so sweetly

Love is not the broken piece  

We are always linked completely


I feel the comfort of your touch

On the gentle rocking waves

Love lives on forever

This fact my heart saves


Your care is found in friends

The new ones and the old

They stand here beside me

Warming from the cold


I receive your eternal love

In the words that they sing

Listen to the hope and healing

That their gifted voices bring


Our memories are in the glow

Of the candle’s flickering flame

I hold it now and softly smile

And proudly speak your name


Though I long to hold you

To whisper in your ear

I know that love’s connection

Will always keep you near
