Her eyes filled with tears at his beautiful words of love.
A few words of love, so he might die in peace?
It was not as if she had spoken words of love to him.
"But now, does she not take your words of love for more than they are worth?"
No, she wouldn't try to make him say one word of love!
So many men had proposed to her with these, the formal words of love.
But he had never whispered a word of love, and so she held to her own reserve as well.
Yet up to that moment no word of love had passed between us.
No word of love, nothing but a demand for what was his.
You spoke such pretty words of love to me that I knew we must remain together.
