To Love And Be Loved By You

How long shall I wallow in lesser truths
to mend this trembling heart, too frail to touch,
my words are weak and lack a steely proof
that must risk all when all is not enough.
What great lessons in and of yourself teach
embroidered by passion and all that is good,
I drop this letter at your virtuous feet
for you have graced the path of womanhood.
Commence then in my mind a strong belief
tempered by the trials of fortitude,
each moment atones, surmounts my grief,
while I strive to love and be loved by you.
