How Blessed I Am


How do I begin to tell you how,
Blessed I am to have you in my life?

I'll start by saying what a gift,
God gave me when he gave me you,
The day you became my husband.
You're my best friend in good times
and my rock in times of sorrow.

You're the reason for sweet yesterdays
and my promise for tomorrow.

I never thought I could feel this
loved until you became my husband.
You made this year and every year
the best one of my life.

    The best poetic phrase for me, dear Nora, is the first namely 'How do I begin to tell you how'.. showing the power of not knowing how to express what you feel. You invite the readers to imagine and speak the unspeakable. This is poetry.

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
