Love dwells in my soul.
Lady Love, so soothing is she!
The peace and serenity of her song imbues
All fractures, every niche
Fills with joy.
What is so real as the laughter of a beloved?
A child’s giggle may be freeing
But it is naïve.
Purity cures much, so Love explains
Honesty is a virtue
Its integrity a bit daunting.
O Lady Love, Love
Gently soothing all wounds!
Her soft embraces, tranquil tendrils,
May be severed any minute, clipped.
And here you approach, with a handful of trepidation
Twisted in fear.
Desperate eyes wide in panic weeping,
There is no stopping.
Love offers you refuge, me.
