You were a poem I read In youth, but Did not understand Till I'd Become a man. And now, The song is gone, Though all the words Still remain. There were days I thought that If that music Twixt us fled, I could not live. How wrong I was! My heart Was strong beyond All I knew. We were not The rhyméd couplet I had supposed, And when Our rhythm died away, The book Was far from closed.
