Juan Loves Elvira - Poem by Juan Olivarez

If you love somebody, you...
Leave your home
Leave your job
Leave you family
Leave your state
Leave everything you hold dear.
If you love somebody, you...
Live in another state
Live in somebody elses house
Are with her for every doctors visit
Are with her when she has her surgery
Are with her sleeping in her hospital room
are there to bring her back to the house.

This is because.....

A long time ago I said I do
It may surprise you, but I meant it too
To have and to hold, forever more
To me is wonderful, it's not a chore
The good lord said she'll stay with you
Until I need her, you'll have to do
But he said remember, there'll come a day
When you or she can no longer stay
Until that day comes be good to her
Treasure the days, you have in store,
Live for each other, live every day,
Until I need you, you both can stay.
