When Love is No More

Before your face is tinged with light of dawn
Before the curtains of our love are drawn
Before the gleam in your eye turns to grey
Before the wonder slowly slips away

Before I taste apathy in your kiss
Before passion from our bed is amiss
Before a loveless night conquers the day
Before winged devotion flies far away

While yet you crave for my manna so sweet
While you long with kisses my mouth to greet
While desire yet ignites you to flame
While raging hunger will not be tame

Now as you sleep, I will slip out of the door
To spare me the pain, when love is no more

    True love will endure, no need to rush out the door.
