Love's Cosmology

Unparalleled, your brilliant universe:
among those wandering stars my thoughts traverse,
exploring wondrous worlds of your design,
unnumbered truths and beauties you define,
the yawning nebulas of dreams you weave
and certain constellations you believe,
which distant comets curve to light your eyes,
the whirling galaxies you energize,
the vastness of the gravities you bear
and weightless days you drift without a care.
Forgive this crude cosmology and find
my wish to tour your heart and soul and mind
intends to know what senses cannot say
so that my love sees deeper every day.
