52 Years

This year, August 15th would have been 52 years of marriage for my Dad and Mom. Dad was taken home on April 14th this year. I miss him. Thinking of Mom, and Dad on this 52nd anniversary of their marriage. 

Dad, August 2010. Married 46 years at the time.

My Love, My Wife

Hair of gold runs away from that perfect smile

Don’t mind me if I just grin and stare awhile

 

Lips so soft and full, they call out to me

Those are taken, we vowed, don’t you see

 

Cool to the touch, your shoulders I touch

Close to you, time spent, never too much

 

Your hands reach for nobody else, just to yours

That, I am, your touch the greatest of all cures

 

Oh save that smile for me beautiful, please

In the entire world nothing more puts me at ease

 

Let your hair dance in the breeze around my face

It tickles some but I’ll never give up this place

 

Let the sparkle in your eyes be ours to share alone

Only in your gaze does the coming of time postpone

 

Dearest love, hold me longer for its never sufficient

My life turned, finding you, my heaven-sent

 

Save the shadows and the less noticeable places

For you and I, the thought, my heart races

 

Tug at me love, I’m strong and I won’t break

I am yours, always here, our life only we make

 

Want not for anything my love, I’m yours, me

If I am not, I will, always the husband I need to be

 

I was looking; I found you, my love, my wife

My everything, I give you, for the rest of my life
