Author’s Notes: I do so love writing for these two. I clearly don't do it often enough. I need to change that. Definitely a good goal for 2015, I think.

Dedication: My muses, as always…

Beta: None, so all mistakes are totally my artistic choice.

The first time I met
My beautiful Regina,
She was petrified
And mourning her Daniel's death.
It was uncomfortable.

The second time though
Was much easier for us.
She was still mourning,
But opened up more to me.
I cherish that first smile still.

By our third meeting,
Both of us were more at ease
Around each other.
Father was encouraging,
And Cora overbearing.

Our awkward first kiss
Remains my favorite still.
Not even that from
Our joining ceremony
Quite compares to that first one.

Each moment and kiss
That my sweet bride and I share
Makes me cherish her.
She has become a true joy
And a soothing balm to me.


I want nothing more
Than to see her lovely smile
Ev'ry single day.
They light up her entire face
And make her ethereal.

The dusky blushes
That color her cheeks sometimes
Make me want her so.
I want to trace that color
Down from hairline to hairline.

The way she reacts
When I shower her with love
Is a temptation,
A true test in self-control
That I cannot always win.

The nights of passion
May cause a lack of slumber,
But so worth it for
The sight of my blushing bride
In the throes of ecstasy.

The mornings after,
When even Father can see
How in love we are,
I'd die a happy woman
If that was ev'ry morning.


The very thought of
Hurting my sweet bride rankles.
I remember well
The threat that King Leopold
Made on our nuptial day.

I doubt he'll forget
The consequences of them
For the rest of time.
Father's armies were swift in
Teaching a harsh lesson.

I learned warfare's arts
From a far too early age.
It couldn't be helped
When you're Midas' daughter
And others covet his gold.

I treasure my bride
More than all of Father's gold.
I'll kill, barehanded,
Anyone who threatens her
Or makes her cry out of fear.

I swear on my life
That my sweet bride Regina
Will never feel fear
At the very sight of me.
I love her and always will.
