The Stages of Love

Work Text:

First is Love Unknown
A bachelor and brother
Contented in life

Then Love Awakened
A stranger enters his world
A meeting of minds

Next sees Love Denied
Only friends with common thoughts
Emotions ignored

Now Love Discovered
Death must not take the other
The loss much too great

Lastly Love Bereaved
Joy and pain go hand in hand
Neither stands alone
