Many of Percy's poems were written to his wife, Rae, who died at Christmas 2007.

You Smiled
You smiled at me!
And I shall forever be in your debt,
That long ago when we first met
You smiled at me.

Then suddenly my whole world changed from gray
To gleaming gold!
Now all eternity within my grasp I hold,
Because you smiled at me.†

Semper Idem
Eternal as the stars
Twinkling nite after nite,
As ageless as the moon
That shines forever bright.

Just so, my love for you
Will always be a burning flame
Unto eternity.

To Rae
(from Fort Screven)
Tonight - Iíll hug my pillow tight
And dream of you again,
And still, I get the same old thrill
With just a touch of pain.

The face that caused this strange embrace
Comes smiling thru my dreams;
So near, that for a moment dear,
Iím back with you it seems.

And so, no matter where I have to go
Weíll never be apart,
As long as I can dream of you
And Iím within your heart.

I cannot see for the life of me
Why a guy would sit and stare
For hours on end at a glass of gin
Or a stein of foaming beer
I know what they think they see in the drink
Must be a wondrous view.
But they never find what I see in mine:

A smile I canít forget
Those eyes that haunt me yet,
A past without regret:

To Rae
Forgive me, darling, if I do not act the charming part,
And kneeling at your feet my homage pay.
What can I give you more appropriate than my heart,
I love you more than any gift can say.

Letís look ahead to all the birthdays we can share,
As well as all the golden days between,
When we can prove each moment how we care,
And make the rest of life one lovely dream!

I Left!
I left soup on stove, ready to warm.
I left crackers in pantry.
I left cheese spread in refrigerator.
I left jam in cabinet.
I left!

Happy birthday!
