Love and mortality

Love offers me eternity,
but in its wake mortality
keeps measured pace.
That steady tread
which shadows close
and nibbles at the heel
of love's light step,
reminds me now
of all I have to lose.
And yet the gift,
that Love holds out
will through the ages be,
one step ahead
and leading strong,
it's ghost - lethality.
