Ever be the lover that you long for,
Doing as you would the other do.
Often you're the person that you're wrong for,
Resisting what would make one out of two.
Everyone displays diminished passion,
Becomes unbearable, if given time,
Disappoints the dreams that are in fashion,
Does what would intentions undermine.
Acceptance of your love and need for love,
And of yourself, above all, and your lover,
And of what is, which shall sufficient prove
To bring you lifelong joy from one another:
Such love of being is the canopy
Under which all lovers wedded be.
