Greetings! Sorry it took so long to respond in kind, but between the hicups on the server and on my own computer, work and life in general I'm only now finding it possible. Thank you for your kindness... I do in deed love my wife dearly and with that said, I should come clean and note that this poem is not about my wife and I. I'll claim being the author in real life, but it was written from the perspective of one fictional character to another. Aside from writing, my other favored passtime is fantasy roll playing... my character of choice at this moment just happens to be a bard. To say the least, he's provided me with some interesting material. Thanks again.
