To Paula

This was written about 2006  after Paula told me that many of poems were depressing.

Before we met I felt so alone
Longing for someone I could call my own
I prayed day and night for someone to hold
Who would walk with me down the jagged road.

My prayers were answered when you entered my life.
We were first best friends, then husband and wife.
Now we’ve been together for many years
We’ve shared times of joy and times of tears.

Things didn’t turn out as we’d hoped,
Times were tough and it was hard to cope.
But through the years you stuck it out,
When many women would have turned about.

The dreams we had were often shattered
But we discovered what really mattered.
Our love was strong enough to hold us together,
Through all of the tears and stormy weather.

You turned out to be what I hoped for
You stuck by my side and so much more.
Through the years you’ve been my greatest friend
And I know you’ll be with me until the end.
