It starts with disbelief & then tears galore-
You thought these years would bring much more.
Dreams are dashed & put on hold-
You must now be strong & oh so bold!
As your spouse slowly disappears before your eyes-
Your heart cries out with urgent sighs!
Help me through this time of our life-
Give me strength Lord through all this strife.
Don’t let me stray – I must stay kind-
Don’t let the devil mess with my mind.
Reign me in so I follow your book-
Let your example shine through my every look.
Yes, the journey is long & inescapable for my mate-
Only with your help to guide us will we survive our fate.
May I look back & say I did my best-
When the Lord calls me home & I get my rest.
