A Portrait in Black and White

                                                    A Portrait in Black and White
                                                    (A painting by Briton Riviere)

                                         There she lies in black and white.
                                         So beautiful she lies there in my sight.

                                         She gave me strength when I was weak,
                                         And gave me the peace that I did seek.

                                         The road ahead I could not see,  
                                         But then like pure magic she came straight to me.

                                         She gave to me her precious love
                                         Which I know in my heart was sent from above.

                                         I’m so thankful today she walked into my life.
                                         She came without warning and became my dear wife.

                                         I look at her picture sometimes late at night,
                                         And feel myself lucky she made my life right.
