Because you spoke to me in tones I could not forget
Even when neither was really
Aware of the other’s existence yet
Because I saw in you exactly
What I had been searching for
And found it so easy to
Pledge my life and work forever more.
Because you proved over and over again
That your life was entwined with mine
And it was plain that we belonged with each other.
For as long as God gives us
And perhaps beyond time.
Because there is so much I feel
And cannot quite express
I write this poem so that it might help at last
