My Life Partner

If I were to choose,
my life partner-
more prettier, more brainier
with fine lips sweet;
if i were to have a wish list,
for myself as often-
a little taller , with a little more brawn;
I may reincarnate again and again,
nay ! I may not wreak the same for her,
for a prettier brainier self
even with fine lips;
for my partner for life glows
with a sparkle known to her only,
getting better with time;until antiquity…

    ” in glorious antiquity only..” is,if the metaphor is deemed appropriate, a firmly delivered ” punchline ” to this concise romantically-inclined work.Redolent of daydream and conjecture it reaches its resolution with consummate skill.
