What could it take to stir a heart, and assure a mind?
How does resentment hold, where warm thoughts wilt and die?
Would pure desire and promise true,
Gain love in spite of you?
Who hears your voice, do they receive a lie?
Does another lover now kiss your sweetest of smiles?
Will unfaltering devotion & surrender,
Suffocate your dreams so tender?
Are thoughts of us, held close in the night forgotten?
Which memories cling to a heart; which song holds affection?
Can a thousand adorned tributes be needless in her eyes?
Yes; now an echo,
Unfelt and untried.
