A Timeless Gift

by Brian Heath

What she's been she'll always be,
A timeless gift sent down to me.
For when she came into my life,
I gained the world not just a wife.

She gave herself while by my side.
Two gorgeous girls who bring me pride.
She helped me see when I was blind,
What matters most as life unwinds.

Each gift she gave, now with me still,
Enrich my life and always will.
For unlike diamonds, gold and such,
The gifts she gave my heart can touch.

I cannot say who I'd be now,
I cannot know what, where or how,
But what she gave, there is no doubt,
Is what my life is all about.

There is a truth that we all know,
We see it everywhere we go,
That love is what we're meant to be,
And that's the gift she gave to me.
