You are One

When light departs a sharing day
kind shadows fall
fears to allay
for you are one

When light returns in dawn’s new ray
hope re-awakes
of sharing joy today
as you are one

Giving is easy, taking hard
but love transcends
self’s wary guard
so they are one

When pain and sadness hide the sun
hold fast, hold true
face what comes
stronger as one

You are not yolked or tied or bound
by choice you walk
to love’s common sound
when you are one

Love incurs no debt, no demands
from each to each
as need commands
and still you’re one

When this life ends as end it must
together still
in love and trust
you shall be one

If the valley of the shadow should come
remember this
when all’s said and done

all is one
