“Loves” Love
Just a reminder from
Someone you once knew,
Of a love so deep,
Of a love so true.
Of our many days
Of joy and sorrow
Of our expectations
Of holding each other
On the morrow.
Life we thought was
Long and hard,
But being with you
Was a joyful, loving
Reward.
Now I await in a
Time without end
Thinking of you love,
My most faithful
Friend.
May what is the end
Is a beginning again,
With our love living
On, my wife and
Friend.
All my love, eternally,
Your loving husband, Larry G.
