You Shine Through...
As the years pass, and we endure
our share of trials and tribulations,
we come to know just how lucky we are
for our many blessings.
After we've recovered from an illness,
we realize it's a blessing to be
free of physical pain;
after suffering despair, we're
grateful that the light of
happiness and hope returns.
After being hungry, we truly
appreciate the bounty of the harvest.
And after we've lost family and friends,
we understand just how lucky we are
for those we have.
And I want you to know that I'm
especially thankful for you
You have been a bright light
in my life that makes each day
more beautiful and meaningful.
You've shined through like the sun
through stained glass to touch my heart.
