I Her Slave


My lady fair

Of features fine

Sweet tones hear

Exceptional mind


Clear in honesty

Soft in touch

Noble modesty

Strong in trust


None compares

Beauty and soul

My heart dares

Queen enthroned


Speechless rendered

Blank my thoughts

Ego surrendered

Tongue in knots


I am conquered

Unable to defend

Humble and awkward

A hero dead


Reborn her slave

All the better

My life saved

Only with her


I now us

Two from one

Passion glorious

Joy and love


Her boy I

She my girl

Deep inside

Our little world
