A memory she left behind

By the embers of a log fire I lose myself in thought My heart is filled with the desire To give thanks for the gifts true love brought. Contentment overwhelms me A smile crosses my lips I play a loving melody As I caress your picture with my fingertips. I can still hear your laughter Even though I sit alone Yes all this long time after I still hear you on the phone . The way you used your feminine wiles To try and tie me down Sat here wearing a silly smile As I remember A verb, A phrase , A noun . Oh how I love these memories I give thanks to the lord above Dear lord will you please Look after my true love . Reward her for her caring Her love and humility and thank her lord for sharing Her wonderful life with me.
