for the morning seeds,

but live in loving pairs.

I have had pairs and pairs,

but singles I have seen

mourning the lost one

they loved

to the exclusion of all others.

Can it be that their togetherness

was so lasting

that it became eternal?

Their eternal love,

fulfilling all its lover's dreams

filling a life of memories,

full enough to last

until there is no need

for mourning.
