This is an extended declaration of my love for my wife, Anita Clare Field.
I met the love of my life on line,
I felt loved, sexy and so sublime,
Each virtue she hits; I love her to bits,
Our future looks rosy and divine.
With hers, my passions and thinking fits,
We both despise all the hypocrites,
We aim for the stars, believing they’re ours,
And any opposition submits.
From our pasts, we both have many scars,
We’ve both drawn on such deep reservoirs,
We’ve triumphed, won, found our place in the sun,
In a sense, we’re our own avatars.
My darling, our lives have just begun,
We’ve a glorious future to run,
We can celebrate, it’s going to be great,
It’s a challenge, but boy, is it fun!
