    Beneath the canopy of moon and stars
    Two tiny people sit, for now together.
    Love binds them, they would like to hope, forever;
    But there is much that such a union bars.

    Heaven is so vast; the Earth so small,
    Yet large enough to stretch a great love thin.
    For love to flourish, it must turn within:
    To the single soul that unifies us all.

    Within this soul the walls of fear dissolve:
    Distance, difference, history are no more.
    The holy silence stills the sounds of war.
    We love as round us miracles revolve.

    We know we cannot live within this shell
    Of heaven both above us and below.
    Day by every day the world we know
    Will guarantee we recognize it well.

    Yet there are truths far greater than the sun,
    Beyond the blanket blue of every day.
    In love's dark longings, we will find a way
    To make our human separateness one.
