David Pearce

Whispered words pulse through the veins of time,

returning to the heart from which they bled.

And every drop of love that has been shed

reflects that I am yours and you are mine.

 

The span of life we shared is but a drop

of blood, released from time's great beating heart.

But we do not control the progress of that dart

of time that pierces all and will not stop

until the end of love, the end of time.
