Perchance To Dream

No love that I know

So completely as I have

Known his.

I have been loved

As all I am,

To depths as oceans,

As warm and sweet

As heartbeats…

I have been loved.

I was loved.

In knowing he chose

Another unworthy,

Of depths I have swam

And have made home in,

My heart abandons the

Hope of his return.

It was no dream.

I was his.

He was mine.

There is no love I know more complete…

As I have known his.
