A toast to love's forever-lasting days

100 words for March.


A toast to love's forever-lasting days
If once it will be found then may it stay
Undying vows held to unswerving ways
Eternal celebration come what may

For all who clasp it long love shines upon
No someday darken-tossed nor fortune-dimmed
Sweet warbled is one's prospect-tendered song
Great comfort in eternal hours untrimmed

But if coerced by time those fires may fade
Then nothing gained of Cupid could we keep
From love's embroiling stumble into shade
Those once infinite passions buried deep

So here's to love while it may glitter gold
As tightly as we grasp it may it hold
