MY EYE DOCTOR, MY LOVE, MY BEST FRIEND


Photobucket

                For fourteen years, Milt and me
                Were happy as any couple could be
                When we decided one day some years ago to part
                The love for this man remained in my heart.

                Milt would not take back the ring and said our love could never end
                He is still my love and also my very best friend
                He was always around to care for me
                To my kids he was part of our family.

                But soon after, Milt became ill and almost died
                How could I live without him? I cried and I cried.
                Parkinson's Disease had taken his strength away
                He needs constant care, both night and day.

                Recently he began to have problems with his eyes
                Milt's an optometrist, so the diagnosis was no surprise.

                He's still my Milt - - - - - -
                I visit him often, we'll never part
                Same sense of humor, brilliant mind and loving heart.
                I'm his "pretty girl"
                Yes, Milt is my king
                And he always asks me
                "Do you know what I love about you?"
                His answer? "Everything."
