This poem is so lovely, simple, truthful, and sweet. What a perfect poem to read as part of your marriage vows. If I ever do get married (at 68, probably never), but if I did, I would ask your permission to use this. It's just so perfect.

Wow, I read your words slowly and my heart actually started to ache. So sad and your words expressed what so many of us have endured in recent years. Beautiful, touching, and powerful indeed!

I can remember those lovely summer vacations with all my neighborhood friends, soaking in my 2-foot pool, riding bikes, sitting by the river, playing wiffle and kick ball on my street and the evenings playing till the sun went down and I heard my Mom calling me in. Such wonderful memories your perfect words conjured in my mind and heart.

Oh, yes indeed, Ann. You have described my life to a T. I agonized over whether to retire or not because there was a time I loved my work, but it was the smartest decision I ever made. Once again, you encapsulated the joy of retirement in very view words perfectly! Hope you are doing OK.

In 1995, I had surgery to correct an arterial brain malformation (AVM), for which I was given a prognosis of only a 5% chance of survival, and I'd never walk or talk again. I told the doctor in 3 days I'd be going home. He said I was not facing reality. I told him he didn't know my God - I had the surgery from ear to ear on October 30th. On November 2nd, my Mother's birthday, I went home with a metal cradle, walked unassisted, and cooked her a big dinner. I speak several languages, including English - and I don't stutter when I talk or wobble when I walk.

Since that time, I've had nineteen more scars added to this earthly tabernacle, created and formed by God - each time He proves how real He is in my life. Thank you so much for sharing your testimony of the wonderful love of Our Father.

I first read this poem in the back of a copy of Leatherneck magazine while serving with 3rd Bn 8th Marines in 1976 at Camp LeJeune. Couldn't remember who wrote it, but I never forgot the words. Very moving.

I once suffered from un-forgiveness. Through time, I learned that it was poisoning my soul with bitterness. I identify with this poem very much and found the same blessed release when I finally surrendered my stubborn defiance giving mercy. I went through the same search of scripture and finally decided to find final peace. I let it all go. It sifted away in the wind and then it was gone.

I know how you feel. I've been in a relationship with my girlfriend for 2 years. There have been good times and bad times, as in any relationship. I've made a lot of mistakes, and she always stays by my side. I left her twice, and still she's here with me. I love her so much, and I feel horrible when I upset her and make her mad. That's why I was searching for relationship poems and came across this one. I know it's old. I hope through reading some of these poems I can stay strong in my fight to keep her by my side.

I liked this poem. It's short and simple but has emotion.
