Holidays may come and go
And moments last forever.
Praised be those whom love combines,
Passing time together.
Years are days, days are years,
However short or long.
One measures time in holidays,
Lilting into song.
In love there is a levity
Distinct from jokes or laughter,
A lifting up of life, a lightness
Yearning ever after,
Still full of joy-to-be.
