SWEETENED GENTIAN, by            
First Line: So soon she died - and with her, half of me
Last Line: Forgetful of time, which blotted, ceased to be.


So soon she died -- and with her, half of me...
Though trudging time brings healing, scars remain.
Within your pulsing breast, runs deep, a strain
Of long remembered love, in minor key.
To weave re-patterned dreams -- this was my plea;
Delete the other years; forget our pain,
And wander down a re-enchanted lane
Of life together, blithely; memory free.

Now is my prayer fulfilled; so close you lie,
Eager to share your loneliness with mine --
Life's tapers light again at love's sweet shrine,
Using indulgence which rapt kisses buy,
In tense embrace of mating ecstacy,
Forgetful of time, which blotted, ceased to be.
