Love Poem about Marriage

Devotion, it is not an emotion it is giving something from your self to the ones that you love each day. When I met my wife I was just 15 years of age, I had all my life in front of me and never realized how fast it would slip away. Now I am 48 years of age with more life behind me than in front of me to live, I now realize how important each day is. I truly pray for all who are in love that you realize how fast life will move, realize what you put off until tomorrow could be lost in the past.

Time, If I Had

© Danny Blackburn
Time, if I had all the time in the world I would have absolutely nothing
It is not time itself that makes your life worth something

In the time that I have I will be a kinder, gentler and more giving
I will take advantage of all the time I have to show more joy, I will be living

I will take the time that I have to listen more intently
I will respond and speak more wisely and more softly

In the time that I have I will share it with those whom I love
Because I have no idea how much time I have, that is up to God above

In the time that I have I will devote my self to God through Christ
I will respect the word of God because without him I have no life

In the Time that I have I will love and honor my wife in all that I do
I do this out of love, a devoted and never ending love for you

In the time that I have I will share a passion for a blessed and positive life
I will make the time to share my love with my one greatest blessing, my beautiful wife

In the time that we have together I will lift you up in spirit and to God I will pray
That you have health, kindness and love as part of your blessing each and every day

Time is no longer my friend and I know that is true
My wife that is why I want to devote all my time to loving you
