You Amaze Me - Poem by Rich Young

You lie in my arms
Late at night
I reflect

It has now been
20 years
30 years
40 years
50 years
60 years
70 years

As one

We have been
We have been
We have laughed
We have cried

Yes my love
We have had
It all
And yet my
You have stood
By me

You have wavered
Just as the trees
With a strong wind

You have worried
About me
Just as a mother
About her children

You have had doubts
About me

Just as we
All should doubt
Things sometimes

It brings change
It brings reflection

And yet
Just as the sun
Is there for us
Each day
My Love
Have been there for me

Without you
I could not
Have been
Who I am

Without you
I could not
Have been
Who I could be

Without you
I would have missed
Many joys in life
Many breathtaking
Many glorious

So as you lie
In my arms
I reflect

I have not told you
Enough times that
I love You

I have not shown
You enough

I have not deserved
The love
Of such a wonderful
Beautiful woman
Such as you

But for all these
Years I have
Had you

And somehow
Over the years

Through the unspoken
Through the soft touches
Of your hand
Upon mine
Through the special
You give me

I know
I know completely
My dear

That somehow
You love me
As much
As I do you
I thank YOU

As you lie in my arms
Late at night
I reflect!

Your Loving Husband

There are relationships which give me hope for the human race. This is one of them. It is easy to walk away from our commitments in life- so much more difficult to face them, work out the problems, solve them, and move on. I know this because this is a true story -it is the story of my Mom and Dad who died not too long ago after almost 70 years. Dad had altzheimer's and would not remember any of his six children, but I watched him reach over from his easy chair and lightly touch Mom's arm. They spent their last years together in a nursing home-when Dad went in Mom moved in also to be near him-Dad died first then a few months later Mom said she was tired, in pain and missed Dad terribly and was going to join him.
And she did! Now that is Love my friends! ! !

Think about it.
And thanks Mom and Dad for telling me your story from the grave!
I love you also
