The Fates Decreed

by Wishes (Judy)

The Fates decreed we meet.
No other way explains this armored soul,
Prepared to bury war--and hope,
And you, a maiden heart
Still innocent of love
Beyond your own hearth.
I thought to leave you
To a better life
Than we would live,
But could not outdistance
Or outargue you
And what you give.
So now I gaze at life anew
Because you say you love me
And act as if you do.
