<==== Robert L. Perkins ====>
The sword of love cuts sweet yet deep my heart.
Torn between joy and pain,
A lonely vigil I must keep
With future hopes my only claim.
Why is my world so far away?
I cry for love,
A chance in time
And Fate, she tempts me with today,
Then jerks me back with knelling chimes
That toll my misery with love so incomplete;
Denies me, when with glassy eyes I stare above
To wonder when the test will end.
