"Take this kiss upon the brow"
sweet tenderness to me allow
for you are all of life to me
I pray unending love can be
your gentleness and kindness show
you might accept me as your beau
if I stay honest, clear and true
in all my promises to you
if you to "thine own self be true"
never giving up your point of view
for these, your ways, I hold divine
wishing only to blend with mine
that we can share a life worth living
with mutual respect and all that's giving
what more could we then ask for us
that what we share be ever thus
"take this kiss upon the brow"
accept my true and fervent vow
that I will hold you dear to me
for all of our eternity
Inspired by the first line of
Edgar Allen Poe's poem

A Dream within a Dream
