Don't drown
Under the weight
Of weariness
I know you've been
So tired
For an eternity

My love,
Don't die
Your smile is so explosive
That I realise
What light can come from beauty

Don't let yourself
Be the same as all the rest
You stand out
My love
You must never stand down

Oh my darling
Do not grow old
And serious:
Do not become
As melancholy
As I

Your joy
Is something
I never have
And if you let me hold you
For a moment or two
I won't have to live forever
