Jenkins Rising

For want of more story to post, here’s a poem.

Who lies before me now cannot be dead.
What I have loved, no other force can take!
I swear it now, upon your broken head,
I'll see to it that someday you will wake.

To distant lands I'll go, that I may learn
What moves the heart and what can make it still.
There'll be no art to which I will not turn,
For how could healing you be doing ill?

My love is strong. I will not fail nor change,
Until your eyes can open and meet mine.
Then finally our wedding we'll arrange,
And live a life that's of our own design.

I know the risks. To evil I may fall.
But for love such as ours, I'll risk it all.
