Love like this

I lost her to the war outside our walls
Raging mob
Of bleeding peasants fighting in the name
Of cruel masters
I lost her to the promise of heaven
And sin forgiven
I lost her to laws laid down by men pretending to be gods

I loved in a way you only love once
In the sense of being completed
In the promise of forever
And she loved me
I could see it in the breaking of her voice
And the pools of sadness in her eyes

I lost her to those that bring out morals
And beliefs of long ago
And I lost her to the raving words
That spilled from their chapped lips
I lost her to the promise of heaven
And sin forgiven

And I know I'll never find a love like this
