License To Love

I would in deed thee truly wed
Token drops of blood for you bled
Lavish garlands at your feet spread
Kneeling at your feet all pretense shed
Vow that by virtue and fealty be led
Each promise proofed and carefully read 
Barter my name in your stead
Banish all pretexts; to self dead
A humble leader not trite figurehead
In your footsteps softly tread 
Feast on your hospitality; in your graces bred
Share your trials; vanquish your dread 
Cultivate your esteem; nourish your bed
Furnish your homestead; provide your bread
