All that is certain
Beyond dispute
The petals in full flush
The gentle fold of her lips
The skin smooth
And soft to the touch
A certain light in the eyes
That never fades
Age imperceptible
The smile ever present
The promise of laughter
Of a kiss
Of a warm embrace
All that is beyond doubt
True for all time
At every pulse and inspiration
What renders the flesh immortal
Nothing nameless or pointless

John Lyons
