haikus eternal

even though you are so far,
i contemplate you:
isn’t she lovely,
so much, and without trying-
note, haiku, thankyou.
every day and night.
i have no doubts insofar
as we are concerned.
we can be as one
wherever our light will shine
on this earth, my love.
consider myself
bless’d, and able to return
the call of your heart.

well, we have many
festivities to share yet-
what a dream that is.
it may be that we
are best expressed face to face…
(we can only hope!)
hopelessly in love?
i hope i’m not hopeless yet,
tho’ i take your point-
past the precipice,
far too far to turn back now
with love in command.
there is no reason
i can see, reasonably,
to fear the result.
on the contrary,
not hopelessly… destiny:
that is our shared gift,
powerfully ours,
undeniably spoken,
tho’ intangible

and so you remain
like the memory’s best kiss
and lingered embrace.
how could you wonder
everyone was beautiful
with you in my eyes?
for all that i see
only serves to reaffirm:
love is beginning.
even this distance
cannot desecrate our bond
sharing existence
is our final testament
to this journey’s end.
