As In My Life You Ought To Be (Triolets)

Poem By Gert Strydom

I
Since the time you I knew
you have enchanted me
where more than beautiful are you.
Since the time you I knew
with other eyes I did you view
as in my life you ought to be.
Since the time you I knew
you have enchanted me.

II
In loving you there is no penalty,
where to the depth of my heart I do
and together we do face each tragedy.
In loving you there is no penalty,
where we are together and also free,
as one we are but still remain two.
In loving you there is no penalty,
where to the depth of my heart I do.

Where for our love I have got great hope
while a moment becomes full of power
that acts transitory during a single hour,
where all of my life is in destiny's scope,
