This poem is written in dialect.
I will bring you a whole person
and you will bring me a whole person
and we will have us twice as much
of love and everything
I be bringing a whole heart
and while it do have nicks and
dents and scars,
that only make me lay it down
An' you be bringing a whole heart
a little chipped and rusty an'
sometime skip a beat but
still an' all you bringing polish too
and look like you intend
to make it shine
we be bringing, each of us
the music of ourselves to wrap
the other in
soft as a choir's last
lingering note our
I will be bringing you someone whole
and you will be bringing me someone whole
and we be twice as strong
and we be twice as sure
and we will have twice as much
