Love - The Sly Cheat

Freshness of the morning dew,
Bright, fragrant roses few,
Buzzing bees; whispering to the blooming tulips,
Nonchalant smile in those pretty lips,
Love steals it all,
Love takes away life’s jovial beat.

Melody of chirping birds,
Tunes, of drizzling rains, unheard,
Saccharine songs humming peace,
Joy; life’s eternal lease,
Love wrecks it all,
Love robs life’s blissful songs sweet.

Cries veiled, sadness replete
Hurt strew, in life, complete,
Heart beats stop,
Lurking sadness in life’s every drop,
Love gives you these,
Love is but the sly cheat.
