For years I had longed to love and lead you,
Although you held many flaws which I tried to rid.
I was greatly successful in depleting a few,
For anything I could do for my beloved I did.
In the darkness before my intentional death I await,
I recall the beatings as I was broken and bleeding.
But you made me better and whole, maybe it was fate.
I will die as a man whose admiration is never fleeting.
Never forget me, I’d like the world to know,
But do not be sad my dear, my heart is with you here.
I dutifully will reap, what I so vigorously did sow.
Live on now although my end is drawing near,
And forgive me as a child when a pet has bitten her,
Yours truly and with all my love,
