For my darling husband who stuck by me for the last 24 years…..
Friends come and go
But you are my true hero
The warmth you gave me over the years
How you upheld me in my fears
Never failing to wipe my tears
Faithfully without switching gears
The smiles and laughters we share
How for me, you truly care!
The inside jokes that make us giggle
You tolerate me though I am fickle
You lay me on a bed of roses
Showering me with love in daily doses
Together we carried our crosses
And gained strength in our losses
Though you are wise, you seek my insight
You are dear to me as Solomon to Shulamite
Like the fragrance of a night jasmine
The scent of your love, refreshing, yet genuine
Like the flowers that bloom in the spring
With your presence, immense joy you bring
Though I am dubious, you constantly reassure
That I am the love of your life, your valued treasure!
