Here in the midst of greatest loss,
reflecting on what might have been,
Naomi gave a kiss of peace,
a kiss of comfort, yet release,
but Ruth would learn what love could mean,
yes she would learn what love could mean.

The love these women would exchange
was not ephemeral or weak,
'for where you go, I too will go',
and through Ruth's actions love would grow,
she'd live her words, not simply speak,
yes live her words, not simply speak.

Verses 3-4 follow
