That I Did Always Love


That I did always love
I bring thee Proof
That till I loved
I never lived—Enough—

That I shall love alway—
I argue thee
That love is life—
And life hath Immortality—

This—dost thou doubt—Sweet—
Then have I
Nothing to show
But Calvary—

    A most beautiful poem in tribute to the source of all Love. Spoken in the First Person. A celebration of life.
