    True Love Prevails

    Pray Death come not slowly be painless with haste

    My heart lies here dying my will soon erased

    What victories are there in the wars fought and won

    When as soon as ones ended another’s begun

    Still I rise to the challenge as the gauntlets re-thrown

    Giving thanks to the Gods for the mercy they’ve shown

    Driven by passion still blind in my youth

    Believing in dreams as if they were proof

    I’m seeking my true love, a white knight indeed

    With conscience to guide him and courage to lead

    I’ll search till I find him or go to my grave

    Without him I suffer an empty hearts slave

    Let Death be forewarned lest the Gods be unkind

    Take my life if you choose but my heart stays behind

    Only Heaven can say where loves destiny lies

    If my fate is to find him my spirit will rise

    No obstacle stands that will cause me to fail

    When a heart seeks true love it will always prevail

    Beautiful Anne, the last line was perfect. And yes hope does spring eternal...He will come...only trust and believe.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
