Love till eternity..



Believe me if all those endearing young charms,
Which I gaze on so fondly today,


Were to change by tomorrow and fleet in my arms,
Like fairy gifts fading away!


Thou wouldst still be adored, as this moment thou art,
Let thy loveliness fade as it will
And around the dear ruin each wish of my heart
Would entwine itself verdantly still.


It is not while beauty and youth are thine own,
And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear,
That the fervor and faith of a soul may be known,
To which time will but make thee more dear!


Oh the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
But as truly loves on to the close,
As the sunflower turns to her god when he sets
The same look which she turned when he rose!

And I think you should have written the last line first.
I was like, what the hell happened to this girl overnight. She just took to old classical english and made a brilliant masterpiece.
Awesome poem.
