"This is the true measure of love,
When we believe that we alone can love,
That no one could ever have loved so before us,
And that no one will ever love in the same way after us."
- Goethe

by Selia Qynn, 8/27/94

This was written for you and me
In some other century
Goethe only glimpsed the magnitude
Of our love so strong
That forever is our bond
Death is only but an interlude.
And I know that one fine day,
The tide again will turn our way.
It's the answer to my prayers I'm speaking of
Like a river finds the sea,
That's how I know that you'll find me.
And I'll be waiting with an ocean of love.
