Here are moments sweet and everlasting,
A time for celebration, song, and cheer.
Perhaps it's something more than joy in passing;
Perhaps it's something more than simply here.
Yes, love exists in time, like us, like sunlight,
Having, like us, a contingent cause.
Over time, however, it, like starlight,
Leads us to what seem like higher laws.
In love one finds the gravity of living,
Desire for joy, for ecstasy, for life,
A force that grants more goodness in the giving,
Yielding parent and child, man and wife,
Solicitude that binds all souls in meaning.
