As I sit here thinking about our life
and about all the beauty we
have experienced, my heart does
truly yearn for you.
I see your face, your loving eyes and
hear your gentle voice even in
the remotest places.
You are the vision of living poetry.
Everywhere I look, I see a part of you.
The walls are decorated with the love
that flowed from your loving hands.
You express the depth of soul.
You are the life that moves and breathes
and made our home a sanctuary.
The everpresent light that you
imparted from within is glowing,
ebbing and flowing like the waves
of a peaceful ocean after a night of storms.
The warmth that surrounds everything
and emanates from its soul is so
strongly felt as if the spirit of
this house echoes your thoughts of love.
Your gentle touch that gave life and
purpose to even the smallest thing bears
your imprint which even the years can
All that your eyes have beheld remain
beautiful and speak of the abounding
joy that you have expressed every moment.
The silence even honors you.
Your name is the song of sanctuary
and I hear it playing over and over
in ceaseless praise and quiet adoration.
In the core of its being,
the chorus repeats the vitality
and passion of your aspirations.
Your tender devotion is felt in
every corner of this sanctuary,
expressed in patience, faith, hopefulness,
fidelity, benevolence, generosity,
unselfishness and gracefulness.
What power you have inside you,
which inspires and uplifts all who
walk within your lucid shadow.
There is no place where the essence
of your being and its perfection
is not felt and known.
You dwell in me where I adore
and live the loveliness of your visions.
I cannot rest, I cannot speak..
for even when I sleep,
I hear your voice and see your face.
I turn to embrace you and the stillness
of the night is all that fills my
All that you are is the secret of my delight.
Your words of love are the light of my dreams.
I keep you with me every moment of the day.
In the freshness of the morning
and through the enduring night,
you are my passion, my expression,
my very reason for living.
You are the eternal light and
heaven in my heart.
