    For my husband…

    His voice was as gentle as Spring rain
    When he said “I’m sorry”
    And I had to say “I know,
    that’s why I stayed”

    With a shy smile I add
    You wouldn’t have listened
    If God hadn’t opened the door
    If He hadn’t cleared the way

    So it wasn’t all me
    And it wasn’t all you
    … love did play a part
    And God saw it through

    Because I miss his voice in the morning
    When I awake and he’s gone
    I’m used to cuddling next to him
    When night slumber takes me into dawn

    I snuggle into him
    Like he’s a big warm/comfortable
    Suede easy chair
    With a blanket tucked around me

    There is safety in his arms
    As they envelope me
    The world stops/waits
    For love has found me

    These things I find too impossible
    To do without
    So me ‘n God made a pact
    To see it through

    And I smile
    Because me ‘n God will win
    Because that’s two
    Against you...

    surely one's love will filter deeper within
    and change the argument to laughter
    this was nicely done Cindy

    I loved these lines:

    I snuggle into him
    Like he’s a big warm/comfortable
    Suede easy chair
    With a blanket tucked around me

    Actually, I enjoyed the whole piece. God does have a way of stepping in and making things right. Flow on.
