Remember Me

Article excerpt

Remember me

The one that created a home for you

Your own private retreat

Allowing you to escape the harsh realities of your world

A sanctuary filled with laughter and peace

Orderly and clean

Fit for a Warrior King

Remember me

The one that stood by you, supported whatever you would do

Validated the man you were created to be

Took pleasure in seeing you lead with dignity and pride

Recognized the depth of wisdom and knowledge you held inside

Always encouraging you to soar

To reach for the places you only dreamed of before

Remember me

The one that massaged all your tension and stress away

Your freshly bathed body, wet, drenched in scented oils

Thought you were on Cloud Nine every other day

Then in the flickering flames of candlelight

I listened to your hopes and embraced your dreams

While not losing sight of my own

Remember me

The one that loved you deeply

My unconditional love given to you

So freely and completely

Our souls blending together as one heartbeat

Like the beauty of the sunset

Where sea and sky meet

Remember me

The one that always honored and respected you

No silly games, no tricks, no child's play

Only blessings filled your day

Before you go

Stop at the door

Take some time

Reflect in your mind

And consider your wife,

The awesome treasure you will leave behind
