The Oil To My Lamp!

by stupendous man

I cannot love you as I ought to
For my love reflects your virtue
Alas! they are more than what I can sing
My words are only words that seldom make sense
But when they do they so for you and no one else
I cannot blame these plaintive songs
For they merely reflect my thoughts all along
As the spirit of my love keeps flickering
Searching for a few words of your innocence
The oil to my flame to keep the wick burning
I can never leave your side by force or will
Nor can time make me old enough to forget
