Anniversary - Poem by David Wood

I awake by dawns early light
And watch you sleeping beside me:
You smile in your sleep and your
Beauty shines through you.

A special day beckons with the dawn;
Our special day when we were wed,
This day will be filled with love
And thoughts softly of you.

Remembering the love we have;
You, the soft summer breeze wafting
Through my life’s hopes and dreams
Making my life sweet and joyous.

My life committed to you for ever
Putting your needs before mine
Making everything in your garden
Blossom, ever only all for you.

This is for my wife Tina who died last year. It would have been our wedding anniversary 10th June.

    Here I see love in eternal bloom
    Blest is She who stands by you
    In this garden of romantic tunes
    Holding hands under a sky ever blue....

    Do such love stories exist? Very good poem Sir and welcome again to my page (Report) Reply

    The celebration of a love physically dead but very much alive in spirit! She must be celebrating this great day in Heaven and the heavenly choir of angels chanting wedding anniversary wishes! ! A great poem with a train of sweet nostalgic memories! ! (Report) Reply

    those who have left us may not return, but the memory of them would link with us as long as we are alive, which my daddy had done since he was 44 and managed the family alone and I never saw him weak and sad..Happy Anniversary... (Report) Reply

    A fitting tribute indeed David to your Wife.
    One year is not a long time but you have shown strength in penning this poem.
    i've suffered bereavement myself in losing both parents and a baby son, so know the feelings well.
    Keep strong David. (Report) Reply

    Very nice but it really makes me feel sad...death is undeniable but we lost a person who we love, we won't accept nothing, but we should live with the memories of our loved ones. very well
