A half-century!
« on: Thu Aug 10, 2017 - 19:06:55 »
   

    To my precious Pat:
    The weather’s turning cold and grey;
    my heart is warm meanwhile.
    For it’s been fifty years this week,
    since I first saw you smile.

    That moment is forever mine;
    Great Hall in amber light.
    You stood before me, like a dream,
    a vision in the night.

    I took a breath before I moved;
    less bold than I put on.
    You smiled on me and spoke to me,
    and then my heart was gone.

    Nothing since then has been the same;
    your smile changed every thing.
    The world’s a brighter, better place,
    whatever time might bring.

That is so beautiful, Barbarian. What a precious relationship you two have, and I hope she knows how blessed she is to have a man who is so loving and eloquent. Happy 50 years to you both - and many more. ((((Mr and Mrs Barbarian))))  ::smile::

To my precious Pat:
Wonderful and even better that you can say this after fifty years....may God give you many more years together. I asked this of my wonderful bride fifty-one years ago this coming December, and she came ....and the rest is a wonderful love story between two sinners saved by the grace of God.

Thanks, all of you.    I owe my life to her.     I hate to think of what I might have been, if I hadn't met her.   She was the way God led me back out of my dark night of the soul.
