everlasting love


I wonder if I'll ever find an everlasting love
Or continue as I have just drifting at the mercy of
An aimless current of emotions in a sea of doubt
Drowning in uncertainty as love I go without

I know there must be someone looking for my love as well
A beautiful Maria, Beatrice or Annabelle
As lovely as a poem set in timeless fluid rhyme
As soothing as a church bell ringing out its pleasing chime

How long must I wait for love to bring me to its shores
Where I can bask under its sunlight with a woman I adore
And lie in bed each night beside this creature soft and warm
A heavenly experience of sight and mind and form

So as I lay alone with only hope to nurse my heart
I pray to be united with my loving counterpart
And then to float forever on a cloud sent from above
As we live on together in an everlasting love

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
