Peas and Carrots


If I go tomorrow
To Heaven’s heavenly gate
God need not tell me
That you and I were fate

You’re my compass to reality
My guardian angel here on earth
Forgiving for things I have done
From the moment of friendship’s birth

Patient as Goliath strong
Or so the story goes
Your ears must tire to listen
Of all of my woes

Even in the labyrinth of life
I know your trust never altered
For it was I
Who momentary faltered


Let me just say
I could not list all your merits
But I am very proud
To be peas and carrots

Marina, now are you going to get sentimental on us?  If so, this poem was a good start.
This was very nice Lady!

this is so sweet and perfect...
I love those stanza's above...they danced as i read them...very nice Marina
take care, jm

 she said I dont know if I've ever been good enough,
and I'm a little bit rusty, and I feel like my head is caving in.
...and I dont know if I've ever been really loved by a hand thats touched me...
and I feel like somethings gonna give...
and I'm a little bit angry.

Sven, don't worry I won't make you use antmore kleenex for awhile.

Nan,I have no idea.  In this case however, peas and carrots being a male and female I hope not.He He
