It had begun to feel

As though a whole lifetime 

Was spent in preparation 

Creating specific guidelines 

With the mixed emotions 

Came the time to implement 

All the little intricate details 

Of a mellowed temperament

He had brought into her life

The type of satisfaction 

That is only worthy of

Utter and complete dedication 

Finding now at this juncture 

Having gotten so much more

Than even to this point

They had both bargained for 

Devotion made a difference

In their unusual union

She had filled him up fully

Leaving no area in exclusion

He had become her solace

And every moment together 

Was the making of a love 

Fortified under pressure
