[GW3k's Beloved] Untitled Poem I Wrote for My Beloved

Once under moonlight my heart wouldn't rest
I found myself wandering already dressed
I slowly peered through a small break in the trees
There stood that young woman whom I'd known from my dreams

And I listened as my love she said unto me,
"I will love you o'er rivers and borders and seas"
And Joy just like an arrow shot straight into me
I gave thanks my God as I fell to my knees

Once under moonlight my heart wouldn't rest
I found myself wandering already dressed
I slowly peered through a small break in the trees
There stood that young woman whom I'd known from my dreams

And I listened as my love she said unto me,
"I will love you o'er rivers and borders and seas"
And Joy just like an arrow shot straight into me
I gave thanks my God as I fell to my knees

But Beauty she is often trailed by decay
And gardens once sprawled out in colored arrays
Will each in their season then to weeds give way
With abandon I wandered the wild astray...

I often recalled how she said unto me
"I will love you o'er rivers and borders and seas"
And as Joy had once pierced me, so now did grief
I wept bitter tears and I cried "You're a thief!"

And I searched high and low for the love I had lost,
Searching the night sky for stars Time forgot,
To fashion in them my final resting spot
For they gave me this fortune: to be with her not.

But just then a vision appeared in my mind
An image of that woman, arms raised toward the sky,
She said "I think I've come to understand the Lord,
The love that we shared we must give to the world."

And I listened in awe as her lips formed these words
"I will love you even on through the end of the world"
And I prayed unto God that this love may endure,
As a light unto all of the dark on this earth.
