Till The World Ends


Detail of a Dante Gabriel Rossetti painting, modelled by his wife, Elizabeth Siddal


As the pull of the moon
And the push of the wind
Cause the waves to break on the shore,

So the lure of your face
And the pulse of your heart
Will ever my lifeblood restore.

Till the tides end their flow
And the breeze ceases motion
I vow it’s just you I’ll adore

For when the end comes
And I’m covered in earth
I’ll be with you for time evermore.

  1. Your poem is so sheer and beautiful Roland, I can’t pick any stanza as they all belong so closely. A beautiful woman’s face has made many a poet pick up the pen and many sagas are based on this.
