We

Why did we meet, lost, hurt, unknown?
Perhaps ’twas Fate, that e’er sly trickster;
Oft she plays, plots plans betwixt
Her list’ning ears; her eyes are fixed
On unsuspecting mortals, ‘lone.

Why did we meet, lost, hurt, unknown?
Maybe ’twas He who made the earth;
Seems likely He would find some mirth
In leading us from very birth
To find each other once we’d grown.

Why did we meet, lost, hurt, unknown?
Mayhaps ’twas naught, no fleeting thought
No meaning, tale, nor story wrought
A chance encounter, one unsought;
And to your arms I’ve blindly flown.

I know not why we met that night;
But glad am I for ev’ry day
And ev’ry hour and ev’ry ray
Of Sun that shines as if to say:
“O, lovers, ask not why today
No longer ye are off, away
One from the other; now allay
This doubt, no heed need you it pay.”
Such love we keep, it must be right.

Some Forgotten Night

~This is an old one, but I thought it worth sharing~

Darkness falls around me
Shadows mock and jeer
I cannot sleep too soundly
With all the noises here

I question what I’m doing
And where I’m meant to go
Which dames I should be wooing
Which seeds to caref’lly sow

And so t’the stars I gaze
With wonder, awe, and spite
In an imbibéd haze
On some forgotten night
