To My Beloved

I will love you better than
any other lover ever can.
I’ll keep your heart inside a jar
preserved in honey mixed with myrrh.
Our love will be embalmed forever
in memory, etched in time’s ledger.
My love for you is hard as bone,
soft as spider silk or eiderdown,
white as winter, warm as dawn,
rich as rosewood, gentle as a fawn.

I’ll bend my skill to dry your tears.
