Eunice, you pour affectionate strength
Over everything you encountered
Graciousness pours from your smile
Your mind ripened on the vine of maturity
Your beauty took my breath away
Your beauty could have easily put
To shame so-called goddeses of
Watched you with a microscopic lens for
Defects but no imperfection or even a
Promise of one my scrutiny revealed
So diamond and gold I tossed into the
Wastebasket in exchange of you.
Your love a balm on my soul after
The zigzag course I sailed with my love
My log book full of disappointing entries
In careless hand writing; it behooves me
To keep my heart secure behind lock and key
But just like a thief, you became proficient
At picking locks and stole my heart
Indeed a rare find among women you are.
I found a heaven in you.
Unconnected halves becoming one whole
So Eunice, let’s not to the union of
Our hearts accept impediments.
Till death do us part.
