Should 1 Have Told You So

I noticed all things about you darling
And you didn't know.
Should 1 have told you so?

The shape of your head, throb of your throat
Curve of your breasts and tender hands.
Slender waist curved below
Youthful limbs to the arch of your toes.
Mannerisms you didn't know.

Oh my darling.
Should 1 have told you so?
