The 39 Years - Poem by Bill Mitton

There is no weight upon these years
Only gentle love, patience and understanding
And within a heart and mind such thanksgiving
There is no time upon these years
For they have passed as in one heartbeat
All laughter, tears, sadness and joys
held within one seconds run
Nor If I could would I change a thing
Save this one
I would try to love more than I did
you have deserved far greater than I gave
for as within the dance of sun and moon
mine was but a reflection of your love.
You are my warmth, my light, my life
And in all things the reason why
I can look back and say
There is no weight upon these years.

For Rosyanne,
My Wife, My friend,
My companion on life’s journey
My one true Love.
