Font Color='#880000'Forever Since I'Ve Known /Font - Poem by David Zvekic

For my whole life, I've spent beside my own
Dark fears that cleave in hate to all I've made,
And tears, I've wept forever since I've known
Her gifts to me sweet fortune's grace has laid.
Where all loves' coin was spent avoiding fate,
That no more helped than harmed what life would give,
So not for love, with naught but lovelorn state,
To once again fear lose the will to live.
At journey's end, that short does catch me here,
Far past this forward place I cannot be,
No ardent flames will ever burn as clear
As this kind minder branded deep inside me.
    So I remember, here in my life's eye:
    That unconditioned love fears not to die...
