Why I Liked This Poem

I think that this is a beautiful story of how selfless the narrator is. He/She wishes for the riches, but not for his/herself; but to give to his/her love interest. He/She is willing to give it all up for the one he/she truly cares about, so the love interest has enough, even though the narrator may be poor.
