Funny how only yesterday
I walked this path alone
But you came alongside and changed my world
You gave me wings
And taught me how to fly
And someday soon, when I am strong
I’ll mount up high and fly away with you.

Like an anchor holding fast within a squall
One who cherishes your friendship as you do
Your companion through both grief and joy
Always willing to look past your faults with gracious myopia
Listener more than talker, good one to help keep your head level
Trusted friend who knows you at your worst and best
Yoke fellow who eases the burden of life’s journey Continue reading “Loyalty”
By my own admission,
Your happy addition
Since your first arrival
Brought my heart revival.

Is my great distraction
For when you are nearing
I find you endearing
And your full enjoyment
My fondest employment.

However did you come to notice me,
A shy and young, yet fragile castaway?
You, sir, amazed me with your gallantry.

A little while ago I barely knew you,
A little while ago I little cared,
For you were nothing more to me than one more face
Continue reading “Kindred Spirits”
If I loved you more, would I love others less?
Or would my loving you but deepen my capacity to bless?
And would losing you then leave me comfortless?
Or would I find a stronger, firmer anchor for my happiness?
Continue reading “Musings”
Lest we forget
We cannot stay
Seen yet unseen
Lest we forget
