To My Fiancee: Faith
~To a Friend
I ask but one thing of you, only one,
That always you will be my dream of you;
That never shall I wake to find untrue
All this I have believed and rested on,
Forever vanished, like a vision gone
Out into the night. Alas, how few
There are who strike in us a chord we knew
Existed, but so seldom heard its tone
We tremble at the half-forgotten sound.
The world is full of rude awakenings
And heaven-born castles shattered to the ground,
Yet still our human longing vainly clings
To a belief in beauty through all wrongs.
O stay your hand, and leave my heart its songs!
i can't write poems well and i can't think very well too... so, i have to resort to copying poems for u, like what guys in past do, copying poems from shakespears and other poets of which many i do not know... juliet is the sun! arise, fair sun and kill the envious moon...
stay happy.... that's my simple wish :)
~I would have you smile, not grief for those whose time has come
