DARLING, Love Me Forever

DARLING, love me forever

and I will do the same

fill our nights with passion

burning the eternal flames.

 

In tender years past youth

when we are old and grey

hold me near your heart

and sing my death away.

 

For you are my one and only

true love doth reside

within our hearts as one

until the end of time.

Jilly is hosting dVerse MTB. We are asked to respond to another poet’s poem, and mine is a response to O Do Not Love Too Long, by W.B.Yeats- Featured Below.

I am a hopeless romantic at heart and as such, I often write about love.

O DO NOT LOVE TOO LONG, by W.B Yeats

SWEETHEART, do not love too long:
I loved long and long,
And grew to be out of fashion
Like an old song.

All through the years of our youth
Neither could have known
Their own thought from the other’s,
We were so much at one.

But, O in a minute she changed–
O do not love too long,
Or you will grow out of fashion
Like an old song.
