Yesterday came the day I realized: All my life
Had been but too long a wait
For the bait
Love would willingly bring befo’ my eyes.
Yesternight came the night I realized: You’re my life
And all that’s left to wait
Lest the bait
Love brought would vanish before my eyes.
It’s not true love, it’s truest love —
For true love’s only an effort to hold
And cling to the heart of an unsettling bae…
It’s not only for endless nights of tenderness acts,
It’s also for the endless stream of funnier tacts
I want you for, — wife, — life. What’s your say?
