Love As It Should Be [senryu] - Poem by David Zvekic

More beautiful than
I expected her to be -
Love as it should be...

A kinder thought and
warmer word than I deserve -
She shared them with me...

No softer hands are
there than those she held on me -
Love as she touched me...

No other cause cries
clear as these: I'll die for her -
What's happened to me?
