There’s someone special walking next to me
Who makes me better every single day.
How fortunate I am to to clearly see
The ways she, as a partner, lights the way
I travel daily, yearly, through the paths
I choose. I wandered here and there through years
Of roadblocks to serenity. She laughs
With me now, although surely there were tears.
No one is immune to hardship, to pain,
To daily ups and downs, but there is hope
In my partner’s wisdom, kindness, and plain
Sense approach to solutions. We now cope
Together, with a boundless joy of life
As a united, bonded man and wife.
