You have already conquered my heart
And laid it waste.
The cornucopia of my affections is now yours for the taking.
You have carried me to your bed and made me yours --
A love-struck Psyche vanquished by Cupid's arrow.
You are my master, my lover, my teacher, my protector.
I am your mistress, your beloved, your student, your friend.
We share a bed, a book, a table, a life.
There is no need to ask that question
Because you already know the answer.
No need unless you want me to call you my husband,
No need unless you want to call me your wife.
