If I could but decide for both of us,
How simple life would be, how free from care.
Knowing that in me you’d placed your trust.
I’d carefully resolve, strive to be fair
Life’s not like that though
I guess I wouldn’t really wish it so
As you decide to share your life with me.
To take me as your own, without reserve.
Life will gain a sweet complexity,
As each with caring hands, the other serves.
Tell me if you know,
what greater love two lovers could bestow.
