To my Dear and Loving Husband

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompetence.
Thy love is such I can no way repay.
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persever
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

    WTF! ! ! ! OMFG! Why is this in the top 500, it's 502, what the heck? Is this a consipracy by feminists? Back to your pathetic comments.

    Sunnie-WTF r u talking about, this poem is about the psychadelic effects of cocaine not devotion, you silly goose.

    Davey-You're comment is disturbing you should seek psychiatric help immediately before you kill someone or yourself.

    This beautiful and everloving poem has given us great comfort since we
    just lost our beloved aunt. Our uncle is devistated and heartbroken since
    they were married 60 years and in love each day of their lives.

    for him, to know that a woman in the 17th century had such deep identical
    feelings about her husband....that death cannot separate them....has inspired
    him to realize he must carry on now until he is reunited with his Lady.

    this is a special website..tks!
