Oh Love Shall Lead Me To The River Styx

Oh, love shall lead me to the river Styx,
Where shadows dance and darkness affix.
In the realm of myths and ancient lore,
I'll follow love, to distant shores.

The waters dark and somber flow,
In the underworld where spirits go.
But love's light will guide my way,
Through the night, into the day.

Hand in hand, we'll brave the tide,
In love's embrace, I won't hide.
To cross that river, love as my ferry,
In this journey, we'll never be weary.

For even in the depths of the abyss,
Love's flame will never cease to exist.
In the face of eternity's daunting tricks,
With unwavering faith, love shall lead me to the Styx.

Through the trials and the endless night,
Love will be my guiding light.
With every step, in every flick,
I'll trust in love, as it leads me to the Styx.

For love transcends the mortal sphere,
In its presence, there's nothing to fear.
So, hand in hand, we'll take this trip,
With boundless love, to the river Styx, we'll slip.
