36 Years Poem by Curtis Johnson

36 Years



36 Years
By Curtis Johnson

When the facts and figures did not add up
When the bank account was empty, and also the cup
When I was tired, weary, and worn, feeling all washed up
From Illinois to Wisconsin, from Mississippi to California

You have been there for me for 36 long years
You have stood by me through all the pain and the tears
You were always praying and helping me to draw near
You helped to carry our heavy loads in the midst of fear

In sickness; in health; for better; for worse; you’re still here
In dedication and devotion, you remain with an open ear
In confusion and frustration, you help me see more clearly
In times when doors were shut in my face, you remained so dear

So here we are, ready and willing, to face another day
Here we stand together, to walk with God the usual way
Here and now, again I say, I love you still, and I pray
By your side and in your heart, is where I want to stay
