To wear the crown when love comes round

and knocks you down.

To sing love’s plight

in the morning light,

after no sleep from the darkest night..

is to feel the love and know its cost,

and raise your hopes within the frost-

of your heart.

To take the risk and place your heart,

within the realm of love’s first light,

is to feel the fear and push it back…

To say I will —the way is clear!

Onward to share, to see, to love

with the one that is meant for me.
