A Love Poem - Going, Going, Here!
Going, Going, Here!
For now and forever,
through storm and drought,
through valleys and across peaks,
our love will endure because of you.
I could have wandered far afield,
become lost in forests dark and dank,
or wandered endless caves and rushing torrents,
save it were for you and your endless love.
Now resting secure in our earned old age,
you beside me as you determined to be,
I see those errant paths you saved me from,
you, your smiles, hugs, and tears, marked the way that has led us here.
Our children questioned and learned from you
the depths of endless love's endurance.
They found there is a higher path
which leads to vistas high above life's clouds.
One day, when we are gone and they are left
to wonder, wrestle, and recall
the light you shared, so bright and clear,
can lead them safely through it all.
Not a life wasted, surely not,
though noble paths there were you might have chosen,
you trod the path your parents trod,
and kept the truths grandparents lived.
There are truths of lasting value;
truths which never change.
God espoused them to listening ears
so long ago in tomorrow's yesterdays.
