Believing or Not

by cricketjeff on March 28, 2012.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

I don’t believe our love will last forever
Eternity holds no appeal for me
But loving you will be the sweet endeavour
That fills my life until next century

I don’t believe that you approach perfection
You must have faults that I cannot conceive
The pleasure I derive from their detection
Will help ensure that I don’t want to leave

But I believe that we make one another
Much more than we could ever be alone
You’ve lit a fire that I don’t want to smother
Please wait to reap the harvest you have sown

Whatever else the lives we lead may hold
The day we met was when I won the gold
