We built our love together,
not knowing any other way.
You filled my heart with kindness
where my love for you will always stay.
The days we spend together
makes my life complete.
Walking hand-in-hand hoping our time
together may never let us miss a beat.
My bedside friend to share images
of what’s gone by and visions of what’s to come.
The comfiest peace of mind knowing
you are by my side until our lives are done.
