What’s In A Name?

  

The  surgeon read and signed

the forms,

those forms that state

the patient’s direction on

how much or

how little to do

if things should happen to 

“go south”

unravel

fall 

apart.

He smilingly noted that he had never ever

seen the “Relationship” line answered this way:

“Sweetheart.”

“Wife”or even “fiancé” doesn’t yet

fit, as there have been 

complicating factors.

But it made me think–

What name? What role?

Sweetheart, yes.

And partnerloverbestfriendsoulmatelifecompanionLoveOfMyLife is too long.

So, perhaps:

“Beloved”?
