    slowly entering the room where
    life used to exist and happiness
    resided as bountiful as fresh cut
    flowers on a warm spring morn’

    I see her sitting quietly on the bed
    resting her tear drenched face in her
    small fragile hands as she continues
    to shed tears of confusion and pain;

    she looks at me as I hold her close
    and leans against my shoulder trying
    to find the words to speak through
    the sobbing of collecting herself;

    I remember the first time you said
    that you loved me and that you I
    could never lose you as long as God
    is your strength,” she spoke to me;

    “and I tested your faith by lying to
    you about where I’ve been and what
    I have done and still you stand
    here with arms open wide for me;

    I would yell at you and tell you I
    hated you fro I was afraid that this
    love you have could never be as real
    as you say it would be for me;

    I laughed at you whenever you went
    to bed early on Saturdays so you wake
    early on Sunday in order to prepare for
    while I tried to overcome a hangover;

    I talked about you when you would take
    time to read your Bible instead of party
    with me at the clubs or out with my friends
    who kept trying to find me another man;

    And I even laughed at you when you came
    home to find another here with me as I
    came walking out of the shower getting
    ready to do more than I was willing to handle;

    and through it al you never spoke a harsh
    word to me nor did you ever attempt to tear
    me down, judge me or chastise me; instead
    you just loved me and prayed for me daily;

    now here I am with you, many years later,
    after God changed my life that you are here
    with me still loving me, holding me, praying
    for me and not once did you ever leave me;

    And all I think about is when you said you
    would never leave, not knowing that no matter
    what I tried to do to push you away it was never
    stronger than the love God had for me through you…

    I embraced her with a hug unlike before
    allowing the breath of God to pass through
    her and as she began to cry more I gently
    kissed her on her brow and whisper in her ear…

    “My sentiments exactly”

    What God has put together, let no man (or you) put asunder.
