Why Am I As Covetous Of Thee As I Am (An Oft-Propounded Query) ? {#2} - Poem by Maurice Harris

WHY am I as covetous of thee as I am (an oft-propounded query) ?

Answer Number 2 of...infinity:

Because I am a better person, because of, and for, you-
Due the only reason I may now muster: I simply adore you;

Mine heart is enamored with thine simply because:
This heart desires what that heart's quintessence, is-
And this heart emulates what it is that, that heart does;
THAT is why, this heart knows not, what obsolescence, is!

More considerate am I, due mine consideration of thee;
'THIS' may be seen every day, in the expansion of, 'me';
Chivalry doth yet dwell, whence a lady is desirous of same-
And that thine heart may have held dubiety, is, for shame!

We two, as a unity, are the very embodiment of true Faith:
We have, thus, fashioned an Eternal Affirmation, from a wraith;

As e'er-biding as the magnificent amarant,

Your e'er-humble appreciant,
