true lovers


e.e. cummings

true lovers in each happening of their hearts
live longer than all which and every who;
despite what fear denies, what hope asserts,
what falsest both disprove by proving true (all doubts, all certainties, as villains strive
and heroes through the mere’s mind poor pretend
– grim comics of duration: only love
immortally occurs beyond the mind) such a forever is love’s any now
and her each here is such an everywhere,
even more true would truest lovers grow
if out of midnight dropped more suns than are
(yes; and if time should ask into his was
all shall, their eyes would never miss a yes)
