A Gift!

I've had my share of life's ups and downs,
starting off early as an orphan of three,
but somehow I've made it through…
you see.

I've known hunger, poverty, loneliness,
despair, cruelty, nights of terror and the
lack of love, for I've been there too!

Years of self doubt, fear, and an unwanted  
relationship. Day after day of wondering
what it would be like to be truly loved
for just one night.

Then one September eve, from out of
nowhere, an angel appeared, as white and
pure as new fallen snow. She took me by
the hand and led me to paradise on this
earth that's was so cold.

Now my life is anew, my candle flickers
with hope from all the love she's  bestowed
through and through.

I refuse to let loose of her sweet angelic hand, and
I refuse to look back at the footprints in the sand.
This is my new beginning.  Yesterday is history,
tomorrow is a mystery…
today is a gift!

She's my angel…she can make the world go away,
and I love her more each and everyday!

Dedicated to the one I love...my wife of six Months...Wanda Lee!
