love is more thicker than forget

love is more thicker than forget
more thinner than recall
more seldom than a wave is wet
more frequent than to fail

it is most mad and moonly
and less it shall unbe
than all the sea which only
is deeper than the sea

love is less always than to win
less never than alive
less bigger than the least begin
less littler than forgive

it is most sane and sunly
and more it cannot die
than all the sky which only
is higher than the sky

I will never forget
I will always recall
Nightmares are wet
As I fall and I fail

My dreams are moonly
My love can’t unbe
You were my only
When you sailed out to sea

I thought I would win
When we felt so alive
Love so easy to begin
My love, I forgive

Sun’s no longer sunly
And surely I’ll die
You were my one and only
My diamond in the sky
