In what seems to be unlikely, at best,
I have been singularly Blessed,
Living through three score of years,
With many joys, and some tears,
A Goddess was made known to me,
Who said she wants to live with me!
She has unbelievably consented to be my wife,
To share my name, and share my life,
Until her, I did not think that I would find,
A person that is of such a like mind,
I do not mean that she is my clone,
We both hold unique opinions, that are ours alone,
But on the issues that really matter,
Our views are so close, they do not scatter,
We both have a trait that seems wise,
We both are happy to compromise,
We have been in relations past,
Where, once begun, the die was cast,
Still, I guess the most important thing,
To see her makes my Heart sing!
Which is unusual enough,
To see her leave is very rough,
I no longer own my Heart, to her, it is on loan,
I have possession only when we are alone,
When she leaves, she takes it with her,
Leaving me to wander around, and dither,
Of all the romantic movies from Hollywood,
Not one has shown a Love this good!
How can two people have so much fun?
Our life together has just begun,
I do not see how it could be better,
But if she wants to try, I will abet her!
Finally, I wish that everyone would find,
A person that fills his Heart and Mind,
To such an astonishing degree,
Just as she does for me!
I think it must be Fate,
That sent me this beautiful Soul Mate!
