May beauty forget your name
and entwine you in a veil of shame
as time never stops to flow
and steals from you all the glow.
But restless is for you my love
even if it's hidden in a cove
for I shall guard your life
though it stabs me as a knife.
I'll stand here until I breathe no more
as you are the precious one that I adore
the embalming soft gentle light
that fades away the everlasting night.
