Chosen Lover



My heart is always home
to my chosen lover.
There is a private tome I read to no other.
My heart is always fair
to my chosen lover.
There is an ardent care I have with no other.
My heart is always sweet
to my chosen lover.
There is a special treat I serve to no other.
My heart is always true
to my chosen lover.
There is a hidden clue I find with no other.
My heart is always close
to my chosen lover.
There is a healthy dose I give to no other.
My heart is always kind
to my chosen lover.
There is kindred mind I share with no other.
