Looking into his eyes in the dim light this eve
Knowing how he carried me through the hour gone before,
I had to wince in disbelief then fall more deeply into the blue
He demonstrated his heart once again with eyes that shone on me once more.
How did I ever earn the affections of a heart so pure?
I wondered then left him sleeping, hoping to wind out what was left
As my evening had more hours to go, my To Do list already trashed
No matter the weakness of my days to discover that this part of living is best.
My love understands what it really means to care
When to be strong, to lie within reach, to call just to say, “hi;”
He slays the dragons out there by land and by sea
Then rescues this damsel as needed (no matter how many times)!
To say that I am grateful
Would be too tiny when I am humbled more than that:
A real man has chosen to love me forever
May the Lord bless us both for the journey: true love magnificat. JJ
