The Long Run


In the midst of toil and haste

There’s nothing of value to waste

With eyes of opaque blue

I gave my love to you


Cut out the winter blues

Together by the fire at last

Forever entangled by desire

We’ll not let love retire


Changing patterns on the wall

Reduced by love’s call

Flickering embers radiate heat

As we listen to our hearts beat


And in the winter nights

We need no lights

Just the warmth of the fire

Forever entangled by desire


Rekindle the flames

But who’s to blame?

Only ours is the reason

Going in on the long run

"The Long Run" is perhaps the most difficult commitment there is. But worth every minute. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.
