Behind the candle light
shadows drew dark cast —
the evening air grew cold
his pulse was pumping fast.

He poured his heart with verse
of proud love and faith
his morning songs have brought
bright smiles upon her face.

A bond from far beyond
a blinding piercing glare
a glimpse between split seconds —
two souls embrace in prayer.
