100th letter (poem 100 from 100 poems for my sweetheart by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

My dear one,
It is my pleasure
To write my 100th letter
To you;
But what can I tell you
That I have not already
Told you?
Just let me say again,
If at all it is necessary,
That I love and value you;
You are not just my silver;
You are my Gold;
The star that brightens
My way at night;
The reason I so often smile
A broad smile
Which refuses to quit my lips;
Assure me I can count
Fully on your love;
That when I go to bed,
I can sleep and snore
Because I have a love in you
That never dies.
Do you assure me?
