Fasting - shows two hands with the pinky fingers linked. One hand has a diamond ring on the ring finger. The background is blurred, but it appears they are walking down a railroad track.

To fast, to yearn, reminds me to pray,
	To learn, to listen to what God might say.
Apart from you, I thirst, I hunger,
	What God joined, man can’t put asunder.
My memory, ‘tis true, it fades, it wanes,
	Our love, a cord, an unbroken chain,
Mistakes, offenses, all in the past,
	Our souls, our bond in Heaven will last,
We’ll be together my precious, my love,
	If not on this earth, in our Home above.
