In Death Do We Part (Poetry)

If they’re to call our love a sin

Then how can any one of us win?

If our union is doomed to fail

Let’s throw love to the wind and sail

In death do we part just the same

As angry mobs have us now do

Life’s oft a bitter lonely game

Unless one and one can make two

If the love now between us fails

It won’t be from their vain assails

You and I are no different

If only the truth was transparent

In courts our union is declined

As hecklers scream for our demise

I implore them please, open your eyes

To the charm’d bond of love’s design

In life we carry on just as

Two hearts in a romance sublime

In death do we part just as

Them and theirs also do in time
