YOUR BETTER HALF
I have been known as your better half
Some of this true, some might be questioned.
I tried to be all that you needed
With words softly spoken and actions unmentioned.
We put together a family
Each one their own individual self.
Strangers from a different time
knit closer by love, our strongest of wealth.
You knew me at times
as stubborn and most proud.
But remember the joy we had
as family made us laugh out loud.
With kids and grandkids
we gave it our all.
We were there together for them
to lift from a fall.
I told you I loved you
Not as much as I should
How can one ever put into words
but I did whenever I could.
Now I am gone
I fought the tough fight.
You were there when I needed
both light of day and darkest night.
But remember my love
Though pain takes its toll.
I am more than your half,
I am always your whole.
