#13 (“My Sweet’, I do so much want happiness. . .”)

 

                        My Sweet’, I do so much want happiness

                        For you!  I want to say, “I will make you

                        Serene and happy,” but to say make less

                        O’r love, for happiness is All if true.

                        We two do share a gift for smoothing way

                        Of each in path of life as One we go.

                        My word must be so soft and sweet, I say,

                        The word of cheer that n’er would make for row.

                        It is so easy, my belov’d, to care

                        For path you take in life by me in stride.

                        O’r love, though not unique, must sure’ be rare

                        For n’er is hint of loss or word that lied.

                             My Paul, do keep o’r love in heart of yours

                             That One we be—not two—to ease through doors.
