TO EVELYN

Thank you dear for all the years

That our love has led the way,

 It doesn't seem so many years,

It seems like yesterday.

You know I love you more than ever,

Love seems to grow through the years.

Together we've watched forty six years go by,

mostly happy days, but a few with tears.

Together we shall always be,

It was meant to be that way,

And love like sunshine came shining through

And it always brightened every day.

I wrote this poem while Evelyn was in the hospital inSouth Bend,Indiana in November of 1994. I typed it on a get well card and sent it, but it never reached her for some reason. Luckily I found a rough copy, so this is the reason for this poem.
