a tribute to my wife

November 16, 2009

She is a balanced woman
She laughs and sings when alone
She takes delight in people
She is my beloved
I love to hear her singing
She plays the dulcimer well
Her poetry tells a tale
Of the years gone by
Her smile captures me
Her forgiveness renews us
Her joy is larger than me
She knows who she is
She is not without her faults
But she has learned how to think
Not take too seriously
Herself or others

    Hi Terry,

    That was beautiful and fitting because I remember your wife to be a beautiful person. I hope you and your family is doing well. Tell Sara hi for me. Things are crazy here. Taking a class and working very hard BUT I love the work.

    Have a great Thanksgiving.
