A Sonnet For You

A Sonnet For You There will come a time or, so I am told When memories will flood this tired old soul. And all of the bitter things I have known Like a flock of scared sparrows, all will have flown. Destiny’s call will leave little time To sit here all day matching rhyme after rhyme. There will only be memories of sweet times I knew, As I spent treasured time writing songs about you. The moment love told us that we’d never part The words came so easy and right from my heart. And, where would I be had I never known The pleasure I found -- calling you my own. Yes, life is as good as life can be – And it all began when you came to me. Written by John Posey 10/29/13

    I am overwhelmed by your comment. We've been together 58 years and as Ruth Graham (Billy Graham"s wife) my wife will say. "In all those years I never once thought about divorce ----- Murder... Maybe, but never divorce".... Thanks for your treasured visit....Jake
