So, I wrote something nice for my wife’s birthday, then looked at it again and decided it’s much more of an anniversary celebration than a birthday poem, so I’ll save it for then (next week).
This is what I cobbled together for her birthday:
Loving mother, faithful friend,
Wife beloved without end;
Another year we have been blessed
To know you and we’ll do our best

Are valued up on high and here;
Please stay with us another year,
So we can give you love and cheer

How much you mean to all of us,
And to the One that we all trust. Continue reading

What sets a soul apart?
Is it breeding or upbringing
Or the depth of his own heart?
“What forms a mind of greatness
That triumphs through its toil?
Whose memory will not be lost
When buried in the soil?” Continue reading
