Foolishly Mortal

'Lord, what fools these mortals be'
loving each other hopelessly.
We're mortally foolish you and I
but our love will never die.

We the mortals be,
fools too, you and me.
I cant help it, and neither can you
so while I'm mortal, I'll keep loving you.

Mortally foolish-foolishly mortal.
No herbs to annoint our eyes;
to make our feelings naught but lies.
We may be fools, you and I,
but if loving you
makes me a fool,
then a fool I'll stay
day after day.

I love you

*inspired by A Midsummer Night's Dream
