To Doris - Poem by Dan Pugh

O'er five-and forty love-filled years
I look back down the road of life
To that glad, warm September day
When you became my wife.

And I thank God He gave me you
To walk with me, your hand in mine,
Through joy and sadness, smiles and tears,
In seasons wet or fine.

For you have helped me with your strength,
And soothed my sorrows, calmed my fears,
And always nurtured my weak faith
As we walked through the years.

Your love has been my guiding light
That shone along the road we trod--
May we be always side by side
As we press on to God !
