You – you owe me nothing
and I owe you the same
for, you see – there was nothing
before "we" became

emotions, in the distance
at my own insistence
not to taint the sweetened slumber
of our days, so few in number

it was bliss I'd never felt
to have my hand within yours held
one of many joys you dealt
memories that with my heart will meld
