A Love Stronger Yet Than Death

Arise my lover, awaken my bride
Let us drink of love as wine
In your kiss shall I abide
Forever in eternity entwined

So weak am I for your love
I lack the strength to weep
Yet shall I rise above
The terrors of the deep

All I do, with my last breath
Is for you, your life to save
A love stronger yet than death,
More powerful than the grave

–- The Prince
