“I Hope in Your Lifetime” by Joan Y. Edwards
In my lifetime, I’ve met people who believe in me, thank me, accept me as I am, empower me to meet my goals, love me without any conditions, and live, laugh, and cry with me. These people leave me feeling better because I know them.
My husband, Carl L. Edwards is one of those people for me. Thank you, Carl. Happy Father’s Day!
The poem below is one I wrote to honor Carl and to spread good wishes for you.
I Hope in Your Lifetime
by Joan Y. Edwards
I hope in your lifetime
that you meet someone who:
Believes in you.
Accepts you as you are.
Empowers you to meet your goals.
Loves you without conditions.
Lives, laughs, and cries with you.
Leaves you feeling better because you know him.
When you do:
Believe in him.
Accept him as he is.
Empower him to meet his goals.
Love him without conditions.
Live, laugh, and cry with him.
Leave him feeling better because he knows you.
Love is an eternal gift.
It keeps on giving forever.
What goes around, comes around.
You reap what you sow.
Thank you for reading my blog. I hope you enjoyed this poem.
Please leave a comment. I’d like to know what you think. Thanks.
