R. K. Hart
Heb rew ……Life
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.
Mum and I remember always our sweetheart,
We have a love for her that never departs.
Her name means in Hebrew life,
And that she is as mother and wife.
You entered our lives with a gentle light,
You have become a woman gentle and polite.
A nest you have created for those of yours,
You have nursed their illnesses and sores.
As a child you nursed your poor sick Dad.
With his pretend sickness, so bad.
You wrapped and bandaged where it hurt,
And may have made a poultice of dirt and grass.
You married a man whose heart is the Lords,
As a pair created a nest worthy of rewards.
The quality of any couple depends on the pairing,
You have created a life well worth the sharing.
I have no you'll continue to follow under Jesus direction,
And make the scriptures be your map when recollection.
You are already a woman with virtuosity,
Hold fast to it, culture it with ferocity.
