Despite the doubts and troubles that you've gone through,
There is no doubt at all about your love.
Though many now change partners when they want to,
You've found your one and chosen not to move.
In doing so, you've given me a picture
More beautiful than any I might draw,
More potent than the most persuasive lecture,
With far more force than any rule or law.
So much you've given me! Yet what you've given
Of love and time and money and concern
Is less than what I've seen as you have striven
To make your lives a lesson I might learn.
I'm grateful for the things you did and do,
But even more, for what you made of you.
