To Mary

I sleep with thee and wake with thee,
And yet thou art not there;
I fill my mind with thoughts of thee-
And press the common air.

Thy eyes are gazing upon mine
When thou art out of sight,
My lips are always touching thine
At morning, noon, and night.

I think and speak of other things
To keep my mind at rest,
But still to thee my memory clings
Like love in woman's breast.

I hide it from the world's wide eye
And think and speak contrary;
But soft the wind comes from the sky
And whispers tales of Mary.

Smitten I was indeed, Mike. blushing I'd asked him to write me a poem one day and was absolutely blown away by these simple words. He repeated them when we married. He'd captured my heart firmly and has held it for 18 years of wedded bliss. wine
