for Amy & Andrew
November 11, 2000
Joy bells ring on heaven's streets.
Angel anthems waft so sweet.
This melodious, rapturous song
brings heaven to earth.
Amy and Andrew have fallen in love.
The stars have twinkled,
and are caught in Amy's eyes.
Andrew writes on sidewalks,
walks on air.
They dare to share their love with us.
Never turn your back on love.
Hold out your arms.
Gather it in.
Hold it closely, lest it slip away.
Make it your dearest possession.
May you never find yourselves back to back
without love pulling you around
into each other's arms.
