FOR MY DEAREST LOVE
IN PLACE OF FLOWERS

I cannot let this day go unremembered
And not give heartfelt thanks to Heaven above
For all the many blessings I've been given,
But most of all, my sweet. for your dear love.

So please accept these lines as one small token
Of that great gift which once was given to me,
A happy life and love beyond description,
Better than any life or love could be.

15 June 1997
