Thank you.  Your visit to and comment on the poem are ihigh compliments indeed.  No, I am not the boy friend in the poem; the two lovers are fictional constructs.  Thanks again for the kind compliment.  I am eager to continue reading your work, but, in my present condition of poor healthy, I am a considerably slower than I used to be.
