If Love Were True - Poem by Barry Middleton

If love could only once be true,
I pray to make it last.

The intermission waits for me,
to end the shadowed past.


The passion and the fever die,
and spring can never stay.

And love is lovely for a term,
then fades like yesterday.


But just a modicum of grace,
would set my world aright.

And one more chance is all I ask,
one kiss before the night.
