For my husband on our 33rd anniversary:
The wonderful man who helps me every day, brings me coffee each morning in bed, and today, brought me breakfast in bed, too. The one who understands and supports me in my daily battle with lupus. The father of our two children, and grandfather of our four grandchildren. I love you!
Love stands beside me all through life,
his care protects me from oncoming strife.
Love walks before me, making a way,
for unobstructed progress through every day.
Love underneath me upholds my stance,
and cheers me on with his every glance.
Love nearby shows me warmth and grace,
with each smile, he shows it on his face.
These many years we have walked along,
sharing many a blessing, singing many a song.
We share His love outwardly, we pray
as we look to Him to show us the way.
So now we forward continue to go,
as between us now we still watch love grow.
Together we move toward new goals ahead,
As we follow God’s lead and do as He said.
So, sweetheart to you I so gratefully turn,
as beside you we both continue to learn.
We walk closer together and closer to God,
as under His hand we move on over earth’s sod.
The blessings of faith still flow through our love,
as God’s mercy and grace come unto us from above.
A new year ahead we expectantly see,
new adventures, new paths with your arm around me.
