Treasure Island

I’m here to stay


Despite the doubts and troubles, that you have gone through,
There is no doubt about are love.
Though many now change partners when they want to,
You’ve found your one and chosen not to move.
In doing so, you’ve given me a picture
More beautiful than the most persuasive lecture,
With far more force than any rule or law.
So much you’ve given me!
Yet what you’ve given of love, time, money and concern,
Is less than what I’ve seen as you have striven
To make your life a lesson I might learn.
I’m grateful for things you did and do,
But even more, for what you made of you.
