O contentment


Edgar Degas

Love as a wonder and beauty serene;
I wander within your eyes.
The depth of closeness is ever seen
in hopeful azure skies.

I hardly doubt a moment passed;
though doubt shall have its day.
To know forever’s gaze shall last,
O pardoned soul hold sway.

Final time is river crossed;
to sup with King on high!
Joy shall not ever be lost;
smile on contented sigh.
