Bernice Shipman Poems

1.
It's Been Five Long Years

It's been five long years since you went away
But it seems as though it was only yesterday
We still love you as much now as we did then
God gave you to us and God took you home

Son-In-Law You'Ll Never Be

Son-in-law others may see, but it will always be Son to me.
When you took my daughter by the hand and stood before God and man, and promised you would keep her through sickness and health, you became my son.
You stood beside her and held her hand to the very end.
You told her you would love her until your dieing day.

You were always there when need be

My darling daughter you came and stood by my bed
