Dalton in Furness, England
There is a secret part of me,
a part that few can see.
Like silk, it is the gentlest,
yet as strong as strong can be.
A guiding light, a conscience fair
a pillar and a rock.
A faithful, burning beacon,
when my ship approaches dock.
Though spirited and changeable,
never to be second-guessed,
compared with other parts of me,
undoubtedly the best.
A part which gave me all my dreams,
yet holds me close to ground.
Where an endless store of compassion,
and selfless love is found.
A part I wasn’t born with,
which came to me as new.
A part I couldn’t live without,
that part of me is you.
Not just a wife and mother,
so much more than my best friend.
First and foremost, still my lover.
May our journey never end.
