My sweetheart… Dear, do you remember?
The sweep of love’s dimension?
Of how we sought each other, so
We scarce could bear the tension.
We’d search among the crowded ways
With eager, burning, questing
Until the sight, the words, the kiss
Would still our world to resting.
The time together we would spend
Flew swift as swallows fleeing
But once alone, the hours dragged by
Monotonous, dead, unseeing.
Anew, our greetings joyous glee
Brought comfort, strength and passion
Our love renewed with boundless depths
Enthralled us in its fashion.
And when we parted, ere the dawn
With promised love’s bright sorrow
The nights were never long enough
We swore to stretch the morrow.
But then, tomorrow never comes
I lie here, bereft and grieving
With just the ashes of our love
Cold comfort, born of grieving.
