So, true love even unrequited
A wonderful thing to have
Refilling its owner’s life with meaning
And healing emotions like a salve.

Helping to inspire and motivate
Ab initio, even ad finem
Bringing order to chaos
Ingraining with hope for the outcome

Growing steadily deeper
Adding depth to devotion
Ingraining trust and fidelity
Leaving for no revocation

Holding to hope everlasting
Eternal love never dies
Never betraying its object
Delighting in the joy of its prize

Rejoicing when it may impart
Its object with joy and with pleasure
Compassion from the depth of love’s heart
Keen to deliver in full measure
Satiation, if such may be love’s part…
