We two—you (Paul) and I—do have the best
Because we give to each the best of self.
My dad did say, “You two are good for one another”—you know the rest.
If I could place o’r love in rhyme and song I would, for sweet the note in clef.
We grew to love in time, a simple love but true—t’is best to love with calm
And peace—how deft!
O’r passion deep doth run n’r wane, for lest
We seek to prove o’r love, we aren’t bereft.
The proof is daily liv’d, I say to you;
N’er seek to prove what needs no proof, n’er rue.
