Love Resolute

As sun breaks through fog
Blinding radiance did reign
Commanding brilliance to
Overshadow the mundane

His beauty veiled her temperance
Of thought, emotion and plan
Captured by the dominance
He held in his right hand

Lifting her high upon his horse
He promised the castle waits
To be lit by her presence
Upon their wedding date

Monsoons arrived in force
And cut short the journey
So he hid her in a cabin
And left her with her yearning

As princes so often stray
To save another maiden
Days, weeks a months passed
She learned she could forget him

Her road was long back home
As she grew with wisdom
Planning life alone again
Erasing memory of his prism

Then she met a common man
One day upon the shore
He loved her in an instant
For the honesty she wore

He said he could not promise
A life without pain or strife
But he would be most honored
If she would be his wife

She came to know his heart
To be pure, honest and true
In February frost they wed
Promises sealed with “I do”

Through seasons rough and mild
They rode the tides of living
Finding the deepest love
Sprang from the joy of giving
