The answer is to stay in love

February 14, 2019

I resisted love’s commitment for too many youthful years,

numerous angry maiden’s, were left to wipe away their tears.


Painful my contemplation, if they endured such an ending,

I pray that all those broken hearts, respectfully are mending.


In fear I often dreaded overwhelming feelings from that love,

hindsight suggests that was the time, to place faith in up above.


Parting as just friends, fuelled such regret and desire all too late;

as absence weakens every heart, then questions that lost mate.


Seldom shall I crave, feelings of exhilarating passion,

commitment is found in one love, away from transgression.


So if unfaithful thoughts or guilt pain you from any such affair,

your answer is too stay in love, don’t go looking anywhere!
