My sacrifice

I nothing want but my all to give.
    My sacrifice ends not in vain.
A sweet return I know shall come
    When I am above all loss and gain.

All pure souls into one must fuse.
    True Love shall only then be known.
The Golden Gate that hides
    The One reveals His wealth, His own.

Undying desires of man
    His high and Golden Goal do vend.
Thus does he fail to dwell
    In boundless Immortality, his End.
