My love for you is beyond gender,
beyond the constraints of personality,
beyond space and time.
It is contained
in the marvelous crystalline lattice,
held by the heart strings,
plucked like a harp,
dipped into the well of clear water.
We are here for just an instant
and vanish like a snowflake,
our imprint still shimmering
against the glass pane.
But the heart, the heart-
it lasts forever.
