Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Come to me my sweet.
Let me put my arms around you,
look fathoms deep into your eyes
and talk of you and what is true.

I loved you the moment we met
but that was in my callow youth.
Years with you made me anew
and that my love is gospel truth.

I was impatient, quick of temper,
and in every spat had to be right.
You listened with grace and a smile
and loved me the more every night.

Came a day when I saw the light,
your sweetness set old me aside.
I became all you wanted me to beó
a man worthy to call you his bride.

Eternally grateful I sincerely am
to have had you as wife and tutor.
I shudder to think I may have lost you
to a wealthy, ready-made suitor.

(A small part of this poem is autobiographical.)
