Four Pillars

For my best friend, partner, and spiritual support with love.

When you first pledged your love to me,
You offered me your hands and feet,
The good you have and good you are,
Four pillars I am grateful for.

The strength of character you show
Is more to me than earthly gold.
Whatever trials come our way,
You’re standing strong through night and day.

And peace is your foundation firm;
When I’m unsteady, you return.
You never falter, never stray,
But walk beside me all the way.

A hand of joy you seek to share,
And I find beauty everywhere.
When troubles come as troubles will,
My anxious heart you always fill.

Your hand of love is kind and true;
In gratitude I look to you.
O may I learn to give as much –
A word, a prayer, a tender touch.

For these four pillars, pure and sweet,
I thank you for your pledge to me.
Your strength and peace, your joy and love,
God sent to me from heav’n above.
