True Love Never Dies

Those  days  have  faded
but  not  from  sight
Those  days  of  beauty  my  thoughts  unfold
When  dreams  of  life  from  morn  till  night
were  love  sweet  love
so  true  and  bold
New  days  have  brought
the  bloom  of  rose
through  a   milder  calmer  sea
But  nothing's  half  as  sweet  to  hold
as  loves  young  dream
of  you  with  me
Your  hallowed  form
embedded  deep
My  hands
still  feel  your  trace
Your  touch
still  haunts  my  every  thought
Your  essence
thrills  my  taste
When  morning  breaks  your  lingered  dream
and  daylight  dawns  upon  your  face
I  smile
then  snuggle  close  to  you
My  hand  slides  gently
round  your  waist

I have always loved your style sir. This piece is no exception. Well done.  

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shodows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face...

William Butler Yeats
