THE BOND OF LOVE
By Poetic Meditations

Will love fade away
Like an old photograph
Left out in the sunlight
Year after passing year?

Will youthful passion
Burn down to embers
Before extinguished
And turned to cold, gray ash?

Will Time advancing
Wither Love’s supple limbs
Leaving them weak and feeble
Until its final breath?

Or will the bond grow stronger;
Hammered by the blows of life,
Tempered in its fiery furnace,
All dross completely burned away,

Until refined and purified,
Left with the tensile strength of steel,
Where neither rust nor age can erode,
Unbroken beyond Time’s own demise?
