My dear, non-blaming spouse–my Sweet’, my love:
I do love thee from depth of heart, indeed.
I wish to treat thee well alway’, to serve.
Do help me, dear, for I am oft’ slim reed.
Your help dost help me fill the day with good.
Your skill to listen is a boon from heav’n.
My bent to brood is this that I do rue.
Help, Sweet’, your wife to be like bread that leav’n.
O’r years together do mean much to me.
Happy I’ve been in time with you for years.
Please live a long, long time, my mate to be.
Happy we be and ne’r do shed few tears.
In joy and peace and hope we live us two.
I hope for days all good and true, n’er rue.
