We are one

You do not demand
that I have the ability
to say sweet words
or sing you praises
to please your ears.  

You do not require that I
be able to afford sumptuous dinners
or buy you diamond rings
or a dozen red roses
to please your eyes

For you know

I will be right here beside you
Whenever you need me
Through rain, shine or haze
Through health or sickness
Through good days or bad
Through thick and thin

No sweet words, precious gems
Are needed to represent
Our sacred bond of love

For you and I,
we are one
And till the end of the world
Do we part
