Its true, without her, I'm half a person
I would still be locked in a room enclosed
In my sorrow and pain and regression
Anything that is good in life opposed

Did you know my love prays for me all day?
Only angers when I could do better
She picked me up from tee-shirt and jeans
And brought me to corduroy and sweater

She took me from the depths of hating God
Who gave me a 'horrible existence'
To thanking Him each and every day
For her on-going faith and resistance  

She supplied me with the faith she upholds
In the good in man, and God, and in me
And I went from hating all of these things
To a true man that God meant I should be

But there were conflicts, of course, on the way
To truly change one must learn to believe
Everything I knew, I found to be wrong
Sometimes I wanted to seek a reprieve

Whimsy,my virtue as well as my vice
To flit back and forth upon the gay wind
My decisions impulsive, fool hearty
Her reality I'd always depend

Burdensome weight on her shoulders Id heave
Shed take it on her back and walk a mile
While I'd sit back and comfortably sigh
I guess I should help out once in a while

I try to learn from misfortune's mistakes
As she lays waiting for me in our bed
I have grown from her spiritual beauty
I vow, with my wife, good things lay ahead

And this One-do not feel the same-
Could it be Madness-this?"
