Within my heart

More than gold, silver
and useless trinkets
more than the fakery
captured in cosmetic love
I promised to be with you
and I always will
through thick and thin
through everlasting ages
I will hold you
when you are sad
I will embrace you
when you are happy
Let the world burn
dissipate in chaos
Nothing matters more
than my promise to you
Together forever
to cherish to adore
Within my heart
you will always have a home.

– To my wife, with all my love.
