    I wrote your name upon the strands of
    sand with love's pen
    but the waves came and washed it away
    So again, I wrote it in second hand...
    then the tide came in
    and made my pain - its prey
    A mortal thing to immortalize
    ...like this, I myself will decay ~
    Your sketched name will be wiped out
    likewise; to die in dust...but allowing
    you to live in fame~~
    My verse, your virtues -
    rare, and will be eternized
    Then in heaven, I'll write your name
    ...whereas death all the world will subdue
    our love will live ~
    and in the afterlife...both our written
    names -- be renewed
