That I did always love

 ◊  St. John the Baptist, pray for us

That I did always love
I bring thee Proof
That till I loved
I never lived—Enough—

That I shall love alway—
I argue thee
That love is life—
And life hath Immortality—

This—dost thou doubt—Sweet—
Then have I
Nothing to show
But Calvary—

— Emily Dickinson (Poem 549)
