For my wife Beth, A Gift From God

There is only one
It is you
To Jesus, I prayed for you
I received a gift from God
I prayed to know joy
You gave me a son
And because of that
I know what joy is
25 years of struggle against the tide
Would have been a disaster, alone
So thank you for my life
I didn't know what I would find
Didn't know what I would experience
Didn't know what was inside my heart
How you moved my soul and mind
Thank you my love, thank you
You are all I want
All I need, it is the truth
Thank you for my life with you
