Those three words

Are an insurrection and a

Judgment upon their hypocrisy

Syllables and sounds of

A personal revolution

That I once thought

You could say too often

But now know

When looking at you

That I can’t say enough

Because in your eyes

They become

Life’s only best hope

The breath of the sun

And the smile of the

Moon and the stars

Upon us as we escape

Giggling hand in hand

Into eternity
