When I wake I don’t have to remember to inhale,
I don’t have to measure the beats of my heart.
I don’t have to worry that my organs might fail,
Or to take any action to make my system start.
And so I do not have to remember those things,
I do not have to be reminded that it is so.
That with our winter soon turning to spring,
that my love for you will continue to grow.
It is a given that I will wake up feeling good,
That is not to say I take it for granted at all.
But it is true through every day and changing mood,
Through Spring and Summer, Winter and the fall.
As sure as the sun will rise and I will wake,
I will love you through every challenge we face.
with whatever life and arrangement we make,
No one will ever stand in your precious place.
For my wife, my best friend, who I love more every day…
