My woman
 

She looked me straight in the eye

Took my hand in hers and said

'I am going to love you to within an

Inch of your life.' I couldn't believe

A woman would say that but she

Wasn't just any woman, she was,

She later told me, my woman

 

She looked me straight in the eye

Took my hand in hers and placed it

On her heart and said 'do you feel

The love I have for you and if you do

Can you return it in equal measure?'

I said I could and I would for I have

Never before known love for a

Woman as I do for you right now

 

She looked me straight in the eye

Took my hand in hers and placed it

On her breast and said 'you have

Become a man tonight, my man and

You will dwell with me forever even

After death.' Taking a small blade

From a silver purse she drew blood

First from my palm then from her own

 

She looked me straight in the eye

Took my hand in hers and squeezed

And said 'we are now one, our blood

Has sealed our love and what is done

Cannot be undone.' 'I am yours and

You are mine forever' and with that

The stars rejoiced and the festivities

In the enchanted wood began
