Stand With Me
By Mark Edgemon
(Dedicated to my wife, Valerie)

I rounded the corner and there she was,
Bright in her eyes; the definition of hopefulness.
Time stopped for me; I knew I had found my wife!
Time began spinning again, moving and yet, she remained,
Standing; devoted; hopeful; looking at me, adoringly.
Miracle of loyalty, grounded and firm she kept me!
And now for my love, it is there; she held me with her faith.
She offered me respect, the deepest personification of love.
All I have to give in return, is what the Lord has made...of me!
The End
