Rings Cannot Hold Them In
by David Kraai

She is the wind
And he's a Monet
They both are intangible
Like mountains or days
You can tell the years
By the crosses within
But they have searched for each other and
Rings cannot hold them in

She is the water
And he is a hope
They've traveled through time
Across rivers and moats
You can drop down a stone
And see what begins
Earthquakes might shake you but
Rings cannot hold them in

She is the fire
And he is a song
They feed off each other
And keep going strong
You can try to erase things
Like memories, paper or sin
But they've been drawn with each other and
Rings cannot hold them in

Pleasure is guilty
Of always bringing sorrow
Another morning or evening
Will any of us see tomorrow?
Darkness comes so early
Broken bonds make a life seem long
Just because you live with someone
Doesn't mean it isn't wrong

She is the earth
And he is a dream
They don't know where they're going
Or even where they've been
You can bet against love
You might even win
But they will always fit together and
Rings cannot hold them in
