Brevity of Love

Brevity of Love
Form: Ottava Rima
Theme: Love
Subject: Grief

Beauty of love cut tragically short
How can the heart know it would end this way
Yet the thrill of love came in an onslaught
On what seemed to be just another day
From that first kiss I knew my heart was caught
Now we only speak when I dare to pray
Each day I struggle to try understand
Why death came by so soon to take your hand
