​The Best Of Themselves 
His attachment to her
Was rather unexpected 

Even she was shocked

At how they connected

He would often wonder 

What if she’d not decided

That it all meant too much 

For either of them to hide it

What then could become 

Of their intimate feelings

Had their union not ensured

Their lives filled with meaning

Both often wondering why

It took them so long to meet

Being so very compatible 

Each other now felt complete

Her commitment to him

Was focused and intense

And what they chose to share

Was the best of themselves 

Once fragile hearts fused

Locked in love together 

Energized in each moment 

Until the very last forever
