For the Sake of Love

For the sake of love, I journeyed far
I sailed the ocean’s rim
I climbed each mountain barrier
So I could be with him

For love, I gave up all my dreams
And followed theirs instead
I toiled each day to feed them well
And tuck them into bed

For the sake of love, I nourished them
With affection through the years
And laughed along with all their fun
And sometimes cried their tears

For love, I sometimes failed the mark
And many times I cried
But now the fruits of all I’d done
Reflects within their eyes

For all the joys I reap each day
I thank the Lord above
And don’t regret one hour of strife
Lived for the sake of love

Liz:I can so very much relate to this poem. A wife and mothers heart never stops giving.
You have captured well the essence of a loving and giving heart and written it stupendously, as usual! Love, ellie
P.S. see you soon!

Summers haunting melody
that awakens
the butterflies,
calling them to join
the dance
in their silent song
of praise to God.

Ellie we had a great 3-hour lunch! WE'll have to do that again!
