I just want to sit by my wife's bed
with her reclining in peaceful rest
using words like needle and thread
and sew for her a most blissful nest.
I will be where I'm meant to be
and even more so where I desire
which to my heart no higher glee
for I'm with the one I most admire.
Only with my precious beloved am I whole
and the only reason to turn back the clock
she having the sole key to my heart's lock
she being the only one to touch my soul.
