“Light At The End”
KS 3/27/12
I glanced at your eyes at the beginning,
Your face guided me,
I hoped for strength through this time,
My thoughts provided me,
There were times I felt we grew,
At others we regressed,
But all of those thoughts and feelings,
I held deep in my chest,
There was adversity, to compound atop,
My feet kept steady,
There were challenges and those who came along the way,
Though none as important,
Still in the stretch run, and there you are,
In you there’s something I found,
Because that YOU is ME…
