To Clifford


          I was so happy
          To be loved by you
          To find in later years
          Contentment, peace, and a sense of belonging
          To find a home within your arms.

          I felt so privileged
          To have someone to care for me
          More than anyone else in the world.
          After years of sadness, trouble and woe
          It was so refreshing to rest and bask in your love.

          Time was so short.
          I knew it couldn't last.
          God was calling you home;
          But oh, the wonder and the joy
          While it lasted.
