Love conquers all, even death!

A handsome prince,

A beautiful maiden,

In a magnificent kingdom,

Do they lie,

One was betroved,

The other too,

For years ago,

They both were loved,

When she screamed,

He would be her rescuer,

When she cried,

He would be her mourner,

For as he slew both beast and fowl,

An unseen enemy came towards the bow,

One night, when he was old and gray,

It stole his breath upon the place he lay,

She found him next morn with tears in her eyes,

And pressed her lips against his,

Just one last time,

At his funeral she wept,

But despair consumed,

She fell in the pit,

Into the earth brew,

Each year passes, their corpses rot,

But their love ever grows,

For even death cannot stop its one true foe.

Good Job! Did you intentionally spell wept as wepped and upon as apon? I knew what you were saying, unfortunately though, I am anal when it comes to spelling--one of my character defects. Anyway, you are expanding your range and for this you should be proud!!

I feel that many people argue about the 'til death do you part' saying. I think that there is no death do you part, not as long as you can love the ones you love most not till death, but for all eternity. This poem reminded me of that. Great word usage.
