The Loves We Bury

When you were you, and I was me
Starlight spilled from the ocean and the sky
Sunlight flared and passion dared
We bathed in love, THAT you and me

When you were you, and I was me
And truth was truth and not a lie
When promise made was promise kept
We lived the dream, THAT you and me

When you were you, and I was me
Kisses were notes of a fine violin
When love was deep and love was dear
We sailed the clouds, THAT you and me

When you were you, and I was me
Romance brought a deep felt sigh
When sweetest grace lit up your face
We loved all night, THAT you and me

When you were you, and I was me
Alas, Alas, do tell me why?
The pleasure’s gone, remains the sigh
THAT you have changed, and so must I

To change is to protect the heart only for my love of life and another soul needing the hand of kindness; my ability to receive love will never change. Wonderful words expressed so well.

A lovely piece, nice form. The title and the last stanza stand out for me.

Ya, many loves don't last. Ones I had
turned into creeps. Good poem.

Wonderful song! Shakespeare was wrong: love can survive, though changed, as the lovers change. Come to think of it, I think that's the ONLY way love survives: by altering when it alteration finds.
