foundations

the builder laid
his foundations
in a swamp
that he might save enough
to spend all that he had
and more
on a ring of gems
so he could ask his love to marry him
but when he
brought it home
he found her lying still
and cold among
the broken bricks upon
the fallen
stone,

he who wants
something more
than
anything
finds it, the poor fool,

i took one look at you
and that was all it took to see
your face as white as snow
and so to see that you might need
some blood from me
my love
for you
you know i would give anything
and oh you know i love you so
and no you never need to know
