Like two pirogues driftin’ through waters deep,

They n’er crossed streams but felt each other’s breeze

Caressing cheek and kissing lonely lips,

A destiny worshipped on prayerful knees.

‘Twas late in life their footsteps tread the ground

That led them to a bayou plein de vie

Where sweet onion and jasmine bloomed, blessing

Their vows declared beneath the cypress trees.

Now tightly clasping hands windswept from age

Between their bodies, they lie in their bed,

And eye-to-eye their souls each night renew

Hushed promises as on the day they wed.

Though seeming brief, their time will never end;

Their waters, merged as one, to th’ocean wend.
