Stable when the night wind blows,
Strong enough for gales and storms,
Security for days that close
In uncertainty in all its forms;
Solid in the midst of strife,
A presence when I am alarmed,
Loving touch from man to wife,
A harbour safe in waters warm.
Comfort when the torrents pour,
Whispers sweet in times of grace;
Being known to inner core,
Companionship in heart’s true place.
Looks across a crowded room,
Children dear to raise and love,
Truest love from youth to tomb,
Gift from Giver up above.
Happy Anniversary to the man who has given these words arms and legs, substance and reality… I love you!
