Poetry Pleases: True Love

John Ayling tells of that most desired of all human gifts - true love.

In true marriage
Two hearts are bound as one
As ours have been
Since love was first begun

We live one life
However it doth seem
And being loved

I do my love esteem
We share one joy
For all our joys are one
And should one grieve
The other is undone.

So should death come
As come it surely must
What slays the one
The other lays in dust.

But if there's truth
In what our hearts believe
Who takes the one
The other will not leave
To grieve alone.

So should I die
Still hold me in your love
I am not lost
But only gone above
