About the Poem

With turmoil in our life I could not sleep one night and these are a culmination of the words that were in my head.

My Life, My Wife

I always felt
You were the one
I'd be with all my life
We met, we loved
We lived together
Then you became my wife

We shared some great times
Good and bad
We laughed when happy
Cried when sad

As time went on
Our hearts did lift
When we were blessed
With god's greatest gifts

Our children, Shirley, Nicholas too
Brought a wealth of joy
We never knew

That's when life got in the way
The stress of work
And not enough play

We carried on a futile quest
Chasing dreams and happiness
Trying hard to do our best
We ended up with so much less

It's not that easy
As we now know
It never was, right from the start
One thing we learned, as we did go
Is happiness
Only comes from the heart

After spending days on the Internet looking for an e-card I decided to look for a poem that would talk about my life with my wife. This poem replicates my relationship perfectly. It also lets me know that other people share the same experiances as myself and my wonderful wife do. Thank you for such an inspirationaL poem. Life is definitly a roller coaster ride. Sometimes we have to hold on.
