He Never Sent Her Flowers - Poem by moon batchelder

he never sent her flowers
she never seemed to mind
he never said; 'i love you'.
but he was always kind.

they never went on honeymoon.
she never bore his sons
or daughters. never wore his ring;
he'd never bought her one.

they never had a wedding,
never took the marriage vows,
yet their unspoken oaths remain
unbroken even now.

tho 'reft of signs external
'cept love in each one's heart,
still, betrothed and bound eternal;
e'en death did not them part!
