I Live in Hope


I live in hope you’ll look my way,

either at or past it matters not,

the stars may kind chance array

or thwart love with callous plot.

For want of your body’s scent

seek I your brief passing shade,

that to the air your beauty lent,

an essence reluctant to fade.

Such passion demands mindful tread,

kept secure behind the castle gate,

pursuit invites only heartbreak ahead,

better love should be left to fate.
