A sonnet expressing how Rose's love for me transforms me into something golden and better.
How you have loved me? Let me so declare!
    Before despair's depths forced me to expire, 
    you loved me with a spirit to inspire;
and yet, still more, you breathed life-giving air
into my soul and gave me a will to dare.
    Since you, I strive to reach ever higher,
    and live life with a zeal that burns like fire;
you loved me as if I was precious and rare.
And therefore my heart is now made of gold,
    which beats for you for ever and always;
you've loved me in ways high-born and untold, 
    dear Rose, so I offer you thanks and praise,
and prize too great for you to count or behold:
    for I love you to the end of my days!
