Cupid's Arrow

Was it something that Cupid knew?
As he strung his iconic bow
That the arrows that it flew
Will cause lovers love to grow?

Is virtue unaware of pain?
If two hearts become entwined
Will the strength of love remain?
If aversions they should find

Will the heart grow fonder?
When absence seems to long
Or thoughts begin to wonder 
May be something’s wrong?

Can tears be shed together?
Not knowing why you’ve cried
Over anything whatever and
Forgetting when they’ve dried

When of love the violin sings
Two hearts can hear the sound
Gently played upon the strings
And as one the joy is found

Is there a bottom to the sea?
That the ship shall sail upon
Will a tempest founder thee?
And then thy boat be gone

If peril’s promise threatens doom
A fate of sure demise
The darkened door of Satin’s tomb 
But together they will rise?  

Will the winters feel as spring?
While birdsong fills the air
Every touch warm feelings bring
Then love is surely there
