We have all seen our share of troubles…we have all seen both joy and sorrow. However some seem to have more of the latter. Such as it is with my love, my life…Jan. Her heart and love is greater than I’ve seen since the passing of Leah, my late wife. I remember when we first met nearly three years ago my words to her were ‘No promises, no commitment’.

However over the last two years that has changed. I am devoted to her in every way and will do whatever it takes to dry the tears; wipe away any fears and bring joy to a life that few have travelled. Now another hurdle has come her way, and she takes it like a trooper and keeps making a way. Without going into details let me say….I have walked this road before, therefore I beseech this request that those whom shall believe in all sincerity pray.

To quote a quote from, I think LL Cool J…When you are on deaths bed and all your dreams are standing around you and they simply ask… why, oh why are you taking us with you”?



 An Ode to Happiness: A Requiem to Jan My Love


I know of your past…I have seen the hurt and mistrust burn like coals in your eyes.

I reach out to you and you smile and suddenly I see the promise of love and life.

I know you have journeyed too many, oh too many hard and difficult miles in your short life.

Yet know this my love…I am here by your side always…I will wipe your tears and carry your strife.


If you were to ask of me but for a star shining bright in the night sky, I would give you all of heaven to your delight.

I would capture moonbeams and hold them close to this, my simple man’s heart.

And when you cry I would release them back into the night sky to bring light back into your life.


Me thinks sometimes Jan that you truly fail to see the joy of the love I have for thee.

If you were but a small dainty flower blooming in the meadow so soft and sweetly green.

I would pick you from all the rest; I would hold you near my heart as I do now and give unto you love unseen.


You dear Jan are the gold that I have found amongst the many fields of broken stones.

I will always love and protect you; I will keep you safe and always call you my own.

I love you Jan and I always will.

A wonderful ode to your loved one. May she get through this next challenge as she has all the others, and you can write of your joy when she does.

I want to quote the words of a song; Consider the Lilies.. they don't toll nor spend for the creator of life cloaks even them..He knows your need and will take care of both you and your love....Know that he is with us always and sees the valleys that we cross...God bless,

I will keep her, and you in prayer....

Mr Wilson, Baby...

How can I ever express the love I feel for you??? There are no words to describe the amount of love I have...We will have known of each other 3 years next month, and it seems that even though we know that we want and need to spend the rest of our lives together, outside forces have done nothing but try to tear us apart... But our love for each other has and always will win every obstacle placed in our way...

But lets wait until we know all the facts, so we will know what we will have to do to fix the problem(s)...All I know is I need you to stay strong...I have taken care of myself all my life and I will get through this too...but I don't know if I have the strength to see me through this and deal with your fears too...I need you to be my 'Superman' more now then ever before...So baby, don't you fret, don't you cry...just be here to hold me when I need here to tell me to suck it up, when I get start whining...Help keep me strong by you being strong...and love me like you have never loved me before... :~)

We will get through this too...
Just me and you and you and me...that's the way it's supposed to be...

I love you baby with all my heart and soul...

Wonderful romantic poetry!
You've got talent J. Allen Wilson!
Love poems are the best when they come from the heart.
Your love for Jan brings out the best in you.
I can hope and pray it goes on and on.

Happiness, love and blessings always,
Your friend on the Den.
