    Looking beyond the here and now of today
    Reminiscing on all of our shared yesterdays
    Endeavoring to somehow envision tomorrow
    So we will never know even one day of sorrow
    For we’ve come too far to disengage ways now
    Without you by my side I am not sure how
    How to maneuver through my daily course
    Although you’re not my only strength’s source
    You elevate me from adequate to full blown force
    Destination unknown if you weren’t here to endorse
    Cosigning my dreams and vetoing the insane rhetoric
    For it’s vital to have that one that keeps you symmetric
    And you continue to balanced me beyond all expectations
    Never permitting me to succumb to failure’s temptation
    Showing me that I am more than my mirror’s reflection
    Refusing to allow me to internalize the world’s rejection
    So I can’t begin to think of my progression in your absence
    Hence I can’t simply marinate in the contentment of the present
    For I defend and protect tomorrow’s joy by current preparation
    Constructing our combined future on love’s sturdy foundation
