Couple at Tea, Robert A. Sieczkiewicz
Be not a better way to make amend,
As I not with knowledge of infraction.
If it was I that to thee did offend,
Pray tell, as there will be rapid action.
Please smile for life so still is very vile,
Come close provide the magic of thy touch.
Show both thy eyes not a chilling profile,
Open thy heart for I not be nonesuch.
Thy displeasure has cut my heart so deep,
For it is to thee I have pledged my life.
Need to find a resolve before we sleep,
As it is love that made us man and wife.
Our union is one for eternity,
No matter the moment of anger be.
