October 1984

 

You came into my life

bringing your gift of love

and I stand

in shock and amaze.

How could one like you

love on like me?

I, whose eyes

can only look to glory.

I stand forever in your debt

and in awe of your perfection

 

And I stand here,

eternally grateful to you

who stooped so low as me.

 


 

To Dave Booney Boonstra,

my very good friend,

on a dark and dismal day after

the longest, most melancholy

boat cruise I have ever had.

Plus one other whose name

I can no longer recall.  Sorry.
