To Have & To Hold

Submitted by SURPRISINGPERSON on Mon, 04/20/2020 - 00:04

A touch, a smile,
A faithful hand to hold.
Warm, kind and careful,
Not trying to be bold.
A love enduring,
Never to grow cold.
A safe, lasting shelter,
To keep you when you're old.

Strength for protection,
To shield you from harm.
There to keep you safe,
Forever free from alarm.
Warmth in mid-winter,
Shelter in the storm,
Love everlasting
Fated since you're born.

To have and to hold
A sweet love so true
Is a God-granted gift
For both me and for you.


Well, I think I may have just found the love of my life, and he's Catholic. Well... Interesting timing.
