Rhyme Scheme: AABCDDEEEEEEFFEEGGHH IIJJKKIILLEEDDEEMMNN

Though you know it anyhowA
Listen to me darling nowA
Proving what I need not proveB
How I know I love you loveC
Near and far near and farD
I am happy where you areD
Likewise I have never larntE
How to be it where you aren'tE
Far and wide far and wideE
I can walk with you besideE
Furthermore I tell you whatE
I sit and sulk where you are notE
Visitors remark my frownF
Where you're upstairs and I am downF
Yes and I'm afraid I poutE
When I'm indoors and you are outE
But how contentedly I viewG
Any room containing youG
In fact I care not where you beH
Just as long as it's with meH
In all your absences I glimpseI
Fire and flood and trolls and impsI
Is your train a minute slothfulJ
I goad the stationmaster wrothfulJ
When with friends to bridge you driveK
I never know if you're aliveK
And when you linger late in shopsI
I long to telephone the copsI
Yet how worth the waiting forL
To see you coming through the doorL
Somehow I can be complacentE
Never but with you adjacentE
Near and far near and farD
I am happy where you areD
Likewise I have never larntE
How to be it where you aren'tE
Then grudge me not my fond endeavorM
To hold you in my sight foreverM
Let none not even you disparageN
Such a valid reason for a marriageN
