Loves Tragedy

Sadness and sighing, lie in bed together, crying,
There is no need to be upset, he said; but softly,
I am here for you, please, let me stay,
your fears I know would go away,

For I will smooth your brow and comfort you,
I will be with you until The days new dawn,
And when you lie in slumber, I will be there too,
My love will be a blanket, and protection from the storm.

She turned and looked at him with sadness,
the hurt inside would never wane
to forgive him would be nought but Madness,
But how else could she ease the pain?

It is too late, she said, the time has past,
My trust in you, is dead, my hopes dashed,
She had found him in the arms of her closest friend
The bond was broken, loves tragedy, it's end.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
