Best Laid Plans

Couple in rain Pictures, Images and Photos

I planned to go away
But you got sick
Then I had to stay
It happened so quick

Your sickness made me afraid
I didn't want you to know
Our best plans were laid
Yet, we never know how life will go

To see you in pain
Makes me hurt too
I want you well again
I will help you through

You're trying to be strong
It's certainly known
This sickness has lasted so long
You're always holding your own

We've been together
Through all kinds of strife
Right here with each other
Husband and wife

The worst times we dread
How will we endure
What obstacles lie ahead
Can we be sure

We'll faithfully pray
That you'll be fine
Recovery coming your way
And sickness left behind

We'll take a lover's holiday
Forget about our lost
We'll lavishly spend, go far away
No matter what the cost

2007 Janet Irene Griffin

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.
