True Love

I tried to write in rhyme
Of nights I’ve spent awake
Weaning my infant love
Humming a silent lullaby

I took my ball point pen
And jotted down your name
In the space of an hour and a half
begging the letters to come

Every letter I wrote spelt love
And every pause, a prayer
That those who love
Should rhyme in love.
