Tokens Of Love
What gift can I give her in token of my love?
It should be something most women think of!
Something like a book, a perfume, or a rose.
She can read the book wherever she goes.
When she reads the book, my love grows
My name shall be on every page she reads.
It's not the book; it's my love she heeds.
I know women like perfumes so much.
I think a small bottle will be a nice touch.
Every time she wears some, I'll be around.
The scent she smells will keep her bound.
I think a rose or two will be a great gift!
As women, we know, identify with it.
It could be...
'How long will you be away? ', she whispered,
'Three months', my tongue hesitantly uttered,
Our hearts sank with a deep silent sorrow,
No words, no gestures ever dared to follow,
Sad was the time when I had to leave,
Heavy was my heart and full of grief,
Such is life; moments of joy and pain,
Such is life; easy, beautiful but insane,
