You, my beloved - dearest soul ever to touch a foot 

 

 

 

 on this hallowed earth upon which now I kneel -

 

It's but the memory of you, that fading recollection of 

 glorious moments past that join my aching heart to a

 

Wasted soul in an elusive hope that somehow, some

 way, I might find relief from a descent into madness. 

 

The parting of our ways was enjoined upon me by a

 sickness that struck at a weakness we neither of us 

 

Knew did lurk; and lurk and menace it did until in full

 and robust form it burst forth fully conceived from an

 

Unsuspecting heart: your once pure and noble heart 

 fastened itself onto another, a soul whose neediness

 

Supplanted my own needs: those once attended to by

 you; and so you drifted to him whose heart was, by

 

Urgent necessity, in peril lest you, the healer of those

 forlorn, should fail to succor the weaker of us two.
