With her I came to appreciate the God.
I became familiar with Death.
Thus is the cvondition of my thoughts.
For if I say I love you, I mean it.
and so I said it, to her.
As a result I envisioned my demise in myriad fashion.
Always hoping it'd occur in her arms so I could, with my last,
tell her how meaningful she was to me...
and that was Death.
With you I feel Life.
I smile with anticipation...
the lessons of the Goddess to come;
having learned, unfortunately, the lessons of the God.
I've known Death,
and the Gods say now..
it is time for this lowly paladin to
understand Life.

The difference
Not my favorite piece. It's probably just me but it seems disjointed and a bit forced. You think such lofty thoughts - this one is probably just over my head.

I'll s'plain
Hey Jon,
Well, to be more specific this is addressing teh duality aspects within the context of paganism. As such with the God, He is represented by Death, personified within Nature in Winter, his coming during the turning of teh Wheel of the Year is Autumn. The opposite for teh Goddess. Her coming is Spring, fully in Summer; and She represents Life. I was using these metaphors to compare two people that are in my life.
I hope this helped brother.
