I have been toasted with pink champagne.
What more can the two of us gain?
We both have spoken, more or less,
and now with this morning’s soft caress,
you touch me to my very core
–largesse greater than ever before.
All through the seasons and gifted years,
you’ve made me laugh, and brought me tears.
We’ve found a place that speaks our worth
dwelling on this, our Gaia Earth.
East Peak this morning I can see
the Taoist flow in you and me.
More than amity, our connection;
Sweet and intimate is our affection.
I toast you back with pink champagne.
What more can the two of us possibly gain?
