The tenderness we share is wholly true, 

Nowise have the years sullied how I feel

Despite the trials that we have been through, 

I yet possess that original zeal.

There are many things that money can buy, 

Worthless belongings that soon fade away

But priceless is love twinkling in an eye, 

As well, said love, which will never betray.

I live for the moments to hear your sigh, 

When our souls meld and the passion burns bright, 

And I have never felt a higher high; 

You are the muse that inspires me to write.

A soul’s hungry yearning is the great spark, 

Love is a flame, burning long in the dark.
