The Dimensions of Love
David Paley

The finest painting by the greatest artist
Cannot portray the like of our devotion;
Nor all the wealth of the golden east
Exceed the riches of our adoration.

No vault can hold this volume of affection;
Nor mountain tower above
The quantum of perfection
In this immensity of love.

Can such abundance ever sunder
Or heaven's joy surpass our earthly treasure?
We live forever in a time of wonder
Lost in realms that only angels measure.

No farewell can part our souls when once united,
Love is boundless; and infinity cannot be divided.
