Remember how you broke a trail with me
Through a thicket to a wooded height,
And how we stood between the day and night
Watching the cooling breath of evening slowly
Chill a flaming sky to gray. A tree,
Taller than the rest, reached out of sight
Through wisps of mist for one lone star to light
The deepening shadows. Remember, too, how we
Embraced within our hearts the magnitude of space,
And listened to some hidden waterfall
Echo laughing answers to a cricket's prayer.
How we reverenced the secrecy of that chosen place!
Remember, too, -- oh! just remember -- that is all!
And in remembering know that love was there!
