Hello,

My name is Hiram Gensler. This site is a memorial to my wife and partner of sixty-six years, Marirose Lind (Lawrence) Gensler, who passed away from Alzheimer’s disease on September 15, 2008.

She was a very loving and kind person; always ready to help someone. She inspired me to write about our lives together through poetry. I can only say good things about her, and have many memories of the times we shared together. These memories are the basis of all these poems, which reflect my feelings for My Angel Marirose.

She enjoyed life; was a good sport and would always do her part. Through the good times and the bad, we stayed together and made things work. These poems are a testimony of those years. She was the mother of six great children who love her dearly.

We hope you enjoy spending time here reading the story of our lives, and our love affair that is still ongoing…it will last forever.

Please read the Legal Document below in case you wish to use any of these poems.

Please come back often!

Thank you.,

Hiram Gensler

Five Long Lonely Years

Five years have passed, since I held you last, And felt your kiss as light as a feather. Truly I say with an aching heart, I miss you now more than ever. I scan the sky as each day goes by, I see your beauty as the clouds float by. As your image is formed in a cloud...

The Reason for the Christmas Season

It's not the pretty Christmas tree, all decked out so bright, It's not the deer out in the yard, with all the pretty lights. It's not the shopping with it's rush, push, rush about, Buying selfish things for us, we just can't live without. Don't let yourself get caught...

Park Hill South’s Powerful Panthers

Those fighting Panthers are on the prowl with a hiss, They want to be tops, the best that there is. They work as a team, in all that they do, To the team and each other, they're Loyal and True. As a volleyball team, they're something to fear, They competed like...

Seventy Years In Love

Walk Again With Me

I'd like to take you by the hand, And walk our paths again. Sharing memories of all we've done, Since our lives had first begun. We'd visit the past of years gone by, Back to our teens our minds would fly. We'd remember important little things, That we had forgotten,...
