Love That Will Never Grow Old

 

~Go to sleep.
May your sweet dreams come true.
Just lay back in my arms for one more night.~

******

""Love you." I whisper close to Heero's ear.

Heero's bangs tickle under my chin, I brushed them aside. He takes my hand, intertwine his fingers with mine and, with a sated sigh, drifts off to sleep.

Another secret night, safe from the prying eyes of the world. Our bed is a harbor to weather the storms of war and a haven from hate.

It's damn difficult to risk our lives for other people's freedom while being denied our right to be together. Heero and I aren't ashamed of our love but we'd be stupid to tempt those narrow-minded bastards who feel justified in killing us because we choose a different lifestyle.

******

~I've this crazy old notion that calls me sometimes
Saying this one's the love of our lives.
Cause I know a love that will never grow old.~

******

I pull the sheet over Heero's bare chest, drape my arm over his waist and close my eyes. My mind wanders back to the first time Heero said he loved me. His declaration wasn't like being struck by lightning but more like a gentle tap on my heart.

I've never doubted our love or that it would last a lifetime. Cause I know a love that will never grow old.

******

~When you wake up the world may have changed
but trust in me, I'll never falter or fail.
Just the smile in your eyes, it can light up my night
and your laughter's like wind in my sails.~

******

"Love you, too." I whisper as I curl up in Duo's reassuring embrace.

War is fickle. There's no guarantee of victory, no promise of survival but there is one certainty in this senseless conflict ...Duo's love.

Duo will always be there for me. He's my light and my guide when darkness shrouds my way. I trust him to watch my back in battle and to guard my heart when the entire universe is falling apart.

I've never doubted our love or that it would last a lifetime. Cause I know a love that will never grow old.

******

~Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time.
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long.
Who cares where we go on this rutted old road
in a world that may say that we're wrong.~

******

Heero and I are soul mates. We were forged from the same lonely past and tempered by the same fire that fuels our passion. We share a love that gives us strength when we're shunned by the world and the courage to face an uncertain future.

We have this crazy old notion that calls us sometimes. Saying this ones the love of our lives. Cause we know a love that will never grow old.
