A Valentine's Day Elegy

You have, to be sure, known pain and fear,
And the anguish of failure and frustration are near;
Yet your eyes read companionship not distance,
Your home beckons forth, with no hint of resistance;
Indeed, your cloak, though threadbare, is half mine,
You are my friend, and I, most assuredly, am thine.
Tristan Gylberd
