Some times we take the people most dear to us for granted.These are thoughts about my partner in life.


It is morning

Cool and damp

I'm just awaking

Here at  the camp

 

Up I arise

Out for a walk

Quiet woods I apprise

I don't have to talk

 

Alone with a thought

Thank God I'm alive

Think of battles I've fought

My wife at my side

 

My mind wanders

back over the years

She has grown stronger

As she's conquored her fears

 

A young country girl

With heart strong and pure

Gifted me with a pearl

With all her allure

 

She's stood by my side

Through thick and thin

In her arms I abide

A warm glow from within

 

You see goals I set high

And years I worked long

Her always there,hardly a sigh

It wasn't her song.

 

Our hearts became one

As we toiled along

As together we won

And both became strong.

 

Yes life ia a moment

And soon it is past

Good times together

Never do last.

 

Are souls are intwined

Until heaven above

My life here enshrined

With the gift of her love.

 

A mother ,a wife

A woman so strong

She's given her life

To help me along.

 

I can never repay

The gift of her life

What more can I say

Lord,I love my wife.

 

Luke July 14th 2009
