New York, USA
Standing here, glancing over there...at him
The greying temples, those square shoulders...
For almost 35 years he has been there
Taking my burdens and bearing their weight....
Married twenty eight years, years of pure life
Together - raising our children
Together for the first steps, first words, first loves
Together for all of the joys
Burying grandparents, parents and brothers...
Yes, standing here looking across the room at my Soldier of Love
Remembering the young boy from all those years ago
Loving the man he is today
Thankful for him...his strength
Joining him in our dreams for the future...
Holding on to all of the precious memories of the past
Knowing without doubt
My Soldier of Love will guard and protect me
