There is a saying:
	"'Tis better
	To appreciate things
	You cannot have
	Than to have
	Things you cannot
	Appreciate."
	You are not a thing,
	But I would have you
	Anyway,
	If I could.
	But since I cannot,
	I will simply try
	To appreciate
	All you are:
	Beautiful, graceful,
	Filled with charm
	And fun and love.
	This, for now,
	Must be enough.
