I try to make you happy (a poem)

I try to make you happy.

Every waking thought,

like standing stones eternally recumbent,

this life has got a lot

of things

For us

To enjoy and spend; our time, with love.

Not a game,

Nor toy, the endless flight of married Life

and together in Death, for Joy

Where a heart-shaped Sun does rise from a heart-shaped box

bringing light

Into the ether, dawn of crave – to music, the fruit of Love

and to Gabrielle – the Love of My Life

forever be my girl?

I work to bring you pleasure.

Every hour of every day,

like standing stones eternally recumbent,

redeeming treasure

abundant

That we

Will enjoy and spend; our time, with love.

Not a game,

Nor a toy, the endless flight of married Life

and together in Death, for Joy

Where a heart-shaped Sun dawns into the same heart-shaped box

recharging every soul

From the ether, dusk of days – to music, the fruit of Love

and to Gabrielle – the Love of My Life

forever be my Girl?
