Fool's Ideology

You re beautiful like stars in the night skies
Even death cannot separate us
Because we’re destined for each other
No wonder why
Lightening cannot set us asunder
What is love?
A fool’s ideology
For my love for this woman
Is deeper than philosophy
What is lust?
An infatuation of men
A 5 minute pleasure which will surely come to an end
True love is a gift
Cherish it wisely
And treat that lady with respect
Or do things nicely
The thought of you
Plagues me like a terrible disease
You re infectious
And at times
Difficult to please
But I love you
And don’t you ever forget
Hold on to these words
Please do not neglect
You need a man
To tame that unbridled mare
Which changes like the weather?
In times of despair
Through the tempestuous waves of life
No matter how stormy it becomes
I shall never abandon my wife
And when darkness sets upon your face
I shall console myself by looking into your eyes
Yes your eyes
Because in it
I know all hope is not lost
And I shall console you by giving you this message of hope
When we’re being crucified and nailed to the cross
For we’re all common mortals
No servants, no boss
As innocent as in birth
And as solemn as in death
As you make your last wishes with those dying breath
We shall overcome it
Even if life ends
For our children will carry on and the outcome depends

O Love! thou makest all things even

Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
