Love does abide - it lingers evermore.
When passion dies and mem'rys slowly fade
The strength of long abiding warmth is shored
By things we shared inside the world we made;
By hugs and kisses, yes, but not just those.
To simplify the depth of what we had
To only physicalities just shows
My lack of skill with words and makes me sad.
So I'll compare my love for you with time
Which always was, and is, and never ends.
It can't be changed, enduring and sublime,
The fourth dimension that no power bends.
Abiding love, a devil-god of pain
And joy, so unrelenting in your rein!
