Naomi Long Madgett (July 5, 1923 – November 4, 2020)
How good it is to let our memory wander
and travel back across the fruitful years
to count how many miles we’ve walked together!
On pinnacles of dreams, through vales of tears,
along the level ground of every day
we’ve made our way.
In sickness and in health, in joy and sadness,
together, side by side, sunshine and shade,
we’ve worked toward common goals, found satisfaction
in all the hours of which our years are made.
All things were possible because we shared,
because we cared.
And after all these years, we still hold dearest
of all life’s blessings anywhere on earth”
the trust and honor that we give each other,
the love that gave our other blessings birth.
Praise be that I am yours by plan divine,
that you are mine!
