Earthly and Still

I have known Beauty,
I have seen Death,
I shall love you unto
My dying breath;
I shall love you unto
My dying breath.
Three score years, nearly done:
Filled with Awe, Joy, and Pain
The void of my longing
Finds the lack of holding you again.
The only real magic
Is beheld in a lover’s gaze.
Even lost down the wrong path
Or a wrong turn in courting’s maze,
Yet will I tarry
To await your fair return.
No matter the chill of time—
Our love will yet still burn.
I have seen Beauty,
I have known Death,
I shall love you unto
My dying breath;
I will love you unto
My last earthly still breath.

About Kitt

Sometimes a rhyme or couplet wanders across my consciousness. So, I share it. Other times I'm a hospice social worker; others, a Dad; others, southerner, New Orleanian, cajun enthusiast, voter, and on better days, a not-too-awful-poet/rhymster. Welcome to my page. Enjoy.
