Love is the reason for everything we do.



She lives to be,

in happiness,

everything to everyone,

believing in some, defending most,

and fearing for all, but one.


Giving to the last,

Truly, she is blessed

as am I to be

My responsibility and my joy,

she is the reason I am

no more concerned

with what could have been,

we face the world together

without trepidation.

Awaiting the day,

two become one.


My Love,

hand in hand,

fear flees away

as my Helen lifts me up

to face the coming day.
