A Poem of Thanks to a Certain Lady


You're the kindest woman I've ever met
And I know that I'll always be in your debt,
Whatever happens I could never regret
The hour and the moment when we first met.

I wish I was able to somehow repay
Your patience and caring in a meaningful way,
You drove all the illness and shadows away,
They vanished like shadows in the light of day!

These words are merely the smallest token
Of the gratitude of which I've spoken,
The darkness has gone and now I have woken
I no longer fear that my heart will be broken.

Nothing can change this, nothing obscure
The love I am feeling which will always endure,
You're the best of them all and that is for sure,
Loneliness vanquished and melancholy's cure! !
