For Virginia —
In your smile I see the hope,
Of the life that we have lived,
Mischievous eyes so full of love,
Given freely as a gift.
In your face I see the beauty,
Of our promises kept,
And forget the painful seasons,
That so quickly passed.
In your words I hear the wisdom,
Of eternal truths that guide the way,
Ancient paths that set the course,
Of the love we have today.
In these moments, You and I,
Built a life together,
And in these moments, In my mind,
We have that life forever.
