A Ballad of Two Hearts



T’was midnight when the gala ended,
In a distant city that never sleeps,
Where our two hearts first met aflutter
A memory my heartstrings dearly keeps,
As virtue and heavenly beauty 
Shone blissfully upon your blushful cheeks.
 
My darling, my life, my incessant dream
Tho’ every night we lie side by side
Two soul mates ‘as one’ in loving embrace 
‘Twain souls revel in oneness, collide
Sharing a love like ours takes a lifetime
My pearl of great price, my wife, my bride.
 
Two hearts pondering a lifetime ago,
When stars in heaven aligned just right,
You in your gown of divine radiance
Me, regal tuxedo ‘twixt limelight,
A dashing groom, blushing bride to be
Our eyes enraptured by love at first sight.

My darling, my life, my incessant dream
Tho’ every night we lie side by side
Two soul mates ‘as one’ in loving embrace 
‘Twain souls revel in oneness, collide
Sharing a love like ours takes a lifetime
My pearl of great price, my wife, my bride.
 
Two hearts dreaming of their clandestine flight
Where love’s first stirrings found their start, 
When two spirits shared their first hello 
Baring their souls in love’s heart-to-heart, 
With lovestruck eyes full of sweet nothings
Promising together we’d never part.
 
My darling, my life, my incessant dream
Tho’ every night we lie side by side
Two soul mates ‘as one’ in loving embrace 
‘Twain souls revel in oneness, collide
Sharing a love like ours takes a lifetime
My pearl of great price, my wife, my bride.
 
Two hearts answering to love’s soft whispers
Joyful moments of love and laughter,
Caring of two hearts, sharing of two souls
Union of lives trusting ‘ever after’
Tis our faithful pledge, stay forever friends
Genteel lives joined in fond peace hereafter.
 
My darling, my life, my incessant dream
Tho’ every night we lie side by side
Two soul mates ‘as one’ in loving embrace 
‘Twain souls revel in oneness, collide
Sharing a love like this takes a lifetime
My pearl of great price, my wife, my bride.

Hello Eugene, I made you a follower. Also a favourite. Nice to meet you. I want to say how lucky you are to have a great soul mate. My husband cheated on me. If he wasn't sick , i would have left him. You are lucky. have a nice day my friend. I am a widow now.
