A Sacrifice For Love


In plight of loving you,
I bleed,
And willingly surrender my self to death.
For with death,
comes emancipation.

But my heart is entangled with yours,
And so is my life,
But I have to depart now.

My soul is halfway across the journey,
singing joyous melodies.
My spirit stays with my heart for a while,
Which with both great joy and pain, ..
Engage in plucking its biting nails from yours,
Before the trinity of me flies away to eternity.

I can't stop your bleeding heart,
Since my heart's nails were rooted so deeply within yours,
Neither can I stop your tears from flowing,
For it's better your tears flow than your blood drain.
Since tears clense your soul, your heart and your spirit.
Within you I've departed,
But besides you,
I'll forever stay.

On the gates of heaven,
I'll forever wait for your arrival,
Days may turn into months,
Months into years.
I let the minutes roll by,
But yet clinging desperately to every second.

Life is not fair,
It hides so many things,
So many emotions, words and actions it can't express.
But I've come to understand,
My eyes are open to devine wisdom,
That the greater love silent in our hearts which life cannot define nor express to a mortal body;
Will be revealed in our eternity.

My love,
When we meet again,
we shall rejoice.
And I shall love you, far more than I am able to.

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
