Eternal Love

<p style="font-weight: 400;">I was like a speck of dust,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">In this vast old universe</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Would have been left all alone,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;"> In the dungeons of Howling Souls</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Until she showed up as an angel,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Sent by my first love</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">And brought me up,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Yes! She brought me up.</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;"> </p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">As time seemed to pass by,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Like the calm breeze in the sky,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">I forgot ‘bout her tender love,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">And turned towards worldly lusts</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">But then she showed up as a Saviour,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Sent by my first love.</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">And straightened my,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">crooked path</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;"> </p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">I was always dispirited,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">And pondered ‘bout future bread</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Until she showed up as my Mother,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Sent by my Loving Lord</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">And lifted up,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">My forlorn soul</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;"> </p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">I am writing this piece of love,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">With tears running down my eyes</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">I don't know what would've been of me</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">If you hadn't been,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Half of me.</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;"> </p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">My thoughts are acting like a dagger,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;"> With the brain being an open wound,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">It’s’ asking what would you be,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400; text-align: center;">When your third love, would meet the first?</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">What will be your state of mind?</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">When the guiding moon will not be there to shine</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;"> </p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">With the ring of questions constricting,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">My Heart trembled, body shuddered.</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">Then the Glorious one guided me,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">To never leave his righteous way,</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">To remember his good Slave's life</p>
<p style="font-weight: 400;">And live this life for the other world.</p>
