We’ve been stars
in each other’s sky
all this time,
though we never
chose to see –
never stepped
across the line

so much time…
many sunsets lost
before we realized

but here we are
body, mind, soul
offering hearts
to each other,
finally, whole

now each sun shines
a different hue,
each sky delivers
another blue

with our love
for each other
no longer concealed,
we embrace
this new life and
the miracles 
we feel

    Freedom’s never free
    Any union has its dues
