Love's Bounty


If I had a lifetime's sins

to spend

I would spend them all on you

for your single kiss.

 

If all my yearnings could be gathered and condensed

I'd place them before you

for a single glance;

and tell you

 

I want you.

 

If all time allotted to me on this earth

was a single instant

I'd open-palm offer it to you

and gladly pronounce you

worth it.

 

If love mine

was all I had

I'd give it

asking nothing in return;

because self-less love
even if unrequited

has no need for recompense

 

or return;
because love of this kind for you
has already made of me
a better person
than I am.

 

If you too
reach for me
to paint my soul
with the crimson brush
which are you lips,
then I'll be all the more blessed.

If not
this heart will not burst

for Love's True Bounty

 

gives
Love Immortal
which subfuses the soul
which never dies;
A bounty which is the Heart's True Salvation

For that

I thank you


my sweet
my lady.
