I love thee great, O Sweetheart mine, my mate!
This Valentine’s I seek to make amends.
‘Tis easy, Love, when mate ye be, not date,
To fail to speak, to say, my love—‘tis sin.
But now I take the time to speak, to say
That ye are best of happenings for me.
No better choice in life was made nar day
Than choice to make ye mine with vows, ye see.
I love thee deep and wide and long in heart—
Heart that dost burst with unsaid praise of thee.
I must say love, before in death I rot.
My life so good, your love hath been the key.
Thanks be to thee, my Love, for treasure great.
The peace I feel is due to ye, my mate.
