Love

Darling,

I mustn’t turn my back on true love,

But as you know;

I’ve become fearful of just how much every choice, every desire,

And every sacrifice—is for you.

I suppose, as your husband, your lover, your friend, and your companion

—You’d expect nothing less.

Sometimes I get afraid of what lies ahead,

Am I not a man if my money should wither away?

Do I get to have you for all eternity and the next?
