About the Poem

For many, many nights, I recall with wonder the simple yet unique way a special man came into my life. Little could I know how many ways this person would change my life, both emotionally and physically.

This person was to remain forever special in my heart. We are like a sunrise, and a sunset, so close.. yet so opposite - each one giving way to the other, yet touching. Without one, the other could not be, and across the miles and hours of sharing, I had to ask: Did I remember? Let me not take this for granted.

Did I Remember?

Did I remember to tell you...
In the stillness of night...
When you whispered "I love you"...
Everything felt so right...

Did I say that I need you...
Did I say that I care...
Did I remember to tell you...
That God answered my prayer...

In the stillness of midnight...
In the dawn's silvery glow...
Did I remember to tell you...
All I need you to know...

I look back and remember...
Before you came along...
When my heart felt so empty...
Was without any song...

With your caring, you touched me...
Then you let me touch you...
And with God's intervening...
There was little to do...

But to say. "Thank you, Jesus"...
For this beautiful man...
For this sweet gentle blessing...
Because God had a plan...

Now my heart has been mended...
And my soul you can touch...
Who'd have thought that our friendship...
Would keep growing... so much...

That the miles in between us...
Would grow fewer each day...
Did I remember to tell you...
What I wanted to say... "I love you."
