“When I look at you I see flawless perfection-I know somedays you think my eye needs more training- but it doesnt-I know what I see-you are a flawless beauty and time only serves to prove this right.You are my one true love-the one I have prayed for-the one I struggled and fought to believe could ever exist-and you are here.It was worth it-waiting for you has been worth it-fighting for you has been worth it.You have redefined happiness for me-I am overjoyed that you chose me.I love you.”
“Well, I have lost you; and I lost you fairly;
In my own way, and with my full consent.
Say what you will, kings in a tumbrel rarely
Went to their deaths more proud than this one went.
Some nights of apprehension and hot weeping
I will confess; but that's permitted me;
Day dried my eyes; I was not one for keeping
Rubbed in a cage a wing that would be free.
If I had loved you less or played you slyly
I might have held you for a summer more,
But at the cost of words I value highly,
And no such summer as the one before.
Should I outlive this anguish-and men do-
I shall have only good to say of you.”
