To my wife. I was lost, rudderless, and floundering until I met you.

To My Wife For Valentine's Day

© John R.

Pondering deeply thoughts of the one
Who has enticed my mind and captured my heart.
I sit quietly picking my ideas apart,
Thinking of words to say to the one who placed the Sun
Up in the sky above my world,
Brightened my path that had gotten hurled
Beneath the troubles and sorrows that stumble
A man on his way to learning to love.
She showed me the Light that comes from above,
Taught me how to cry, care, and be humble,
Started the fire within my soul,
Eased my burdens by helping to carry the load.
She pointed the true direction to the only road
Out of the darkness and made me whole.
She completes me as a man, this beautiful lass.
Words can't describe the softness of her touch
Or describe to you how I love her so much
Her kindness shines like polished brass.
Happy Valentine's Day my dear.
May all of your dreams come true
And may God continue to show you
How to be lighthouse of hope and cheer.
