Trickery - Poem by George Aul

One day when we're together,
I think I'll tell you the tale,
of how I thought I tricked you,
but now, I'm the one who's pale.

I saw you in the diner,
and knew you were mine for good,
I never thought any different,
when I asked you if you would.

I didn't have any money,
but I acted like a millionaire,
I never gave it a single thought,
that you really didn't care.

I tried to impress you with gifts,
I couldn't afford them, for sure,
but I was much more afraid,
that you would find me a bore.

The trick was really on me,
I finally figured out,
for you knew all along,
what I was really all about.

I'll never know why,
you've stayed with me so long,
I was certain by this time,
you'd realize that you were wrong.

I can only say it now,
I'm so glad you are still here,
my life, you've made happy,
I've been tricked - that's perfectly clear!
