I woke up this morning to a beautiful day,
Created by God in His special way.
The air was crisp and the skies were blue,
To make it more perfect, there were thoughts of you.

The sun was shining, as bright as your smile,
Not a cloud in the sky for many a mile.
As I started the day, without worry or care,
I could feel your presence everywhere.

My thoughts wandered back to other days,
When life was less hectic, in many ways.
I could picture you when we first met at school,
And the summers we shared in the swimming pool.

You were the strength that made things so good,
We molded our lives the best that we could.
As our children grew up you kept them in line,
What a great bunch, they sure turned out fine.

You are always on my mind,
Beautiful, thoughtful, helpful and kind.
God has promised eternal life,
I’ll be seeing you, my wonderful wife.
