My Dearest Friend

What is it about this man I love so much,
his winsome personality or loving touch?
What drew me to him in the first place,
mere chance, coincidence, or amazing grace.
What makes a woman fall in love with her man,
some magical moment when he takes her hand?
Oh why should I question and wonder so,
when deep in my heart the answer I know.

Long ago before we met, God had a plan,
for this woman, and this man!
At just the right time to my  surprise,
you looked at me with love in your eyes.
Through changing seasons, together we’ve grown,
and our love has simply gone on and on.
A wonderful father and grandfather you’ve been;
Sweetheart and husband and my dearest friend.
