Tis' Tender, My Love

Written by: regina branham

'Tis tender love of which I wite;
the timbre of my heart's 
throe

Quean remains 
for all others
to lo

Demean with a falseness
of my true emotion;
would only coquet;
that which causes
my heart to beat
strong and loud
in chimera

To covet for affections
be returned as
deep and sincere;
surely would force 
the last
breath I breathe

For this is too 
noble a love; too
fierce a fire 
to extinquish
