This poem was written by the love of my life, And she thinks she's LUCKY !!. Thankyou Honey XXXOOO
As I sit in contemplation of my life before we met.
I can only truly marvel at the time that we have spent,
I moves me beyond thought or words, to tell you how I feel
And I have to keep on blinking to make sure it is real.
I feel like sleeping beauty who has slept her life away,
And woken with surprise as the darkness turns to day,
The world looks somewhat different from perceptions of before,
And it beckons me inviting, to taste lifeís simple store.
Like a billowing cloud of thunder as it keeps the rain at bay,
My world of grey and pallor have gone and moved away,
And when the grey clouds part and the sun comes shining through
I look up towards the rays of light and feel like Iím renewed.
What good deed have I done to be blessed with such as you,
A person soft and gentle with a heart thatís fair and true,
Youíve shown me love and happiness, a joy beyond compare,
Dreams like these Iíd locked away and never hoped to share.
My heart swells deep within me and awakens from its sleep,
And it warms to who and what you are and that I want to keep,
A new hope soars within my heart that all is not a dream,
Thereís sunlight in my life now, it surrounds me in itís beam.
As a butterfly unfolds and spreads itís wings to let them dry,
I feel that Iíve come home and canít help but heave a sigh
I thought that I had lost the plot of lifeís simplistic pleasures,
But I know itís all around me in all of natures treasures.
So hold me in your arms, when Iím weak and canít see through,
Be my eyes and tell me, what the world looks like to you,
Your words will lead me on, to a better, brighter place,
Iíll see it written in your eyes and etched across your face.
An when my life is through and I run my final race,
Iíll smile a blissful smile as I stare into your face,
ĎCause I know youíll always be there, in this life and the next,
I want to tell you always, you are the very best.
Linda Hamilton 28/2/00
Slow Down, stop to smell the roses and stroll through the garden of life, it will be a more pleasurable experience.
I think of you always Honey XXXOOO.
