Orphan Child

They love with a love not more than another
They love with a love not stronger of that of a sister and a brother
Pain and sorrow fear no marrow
For they do not go away with the sun's great ray
Self-righteous and shame are of that to blame
The water drips from the sky as that which the blood drips from their achen heart
Death is their only savior
Saving them from a lifetime of sorrowed solitude
As the sun shines from the sky above
The stars in the shadowy night belong to their love
Star-crossed lovers of which they be
