Why I Chose You


I chose you not as one of two... Or one of three or four
But out of all the ones I met... A thousand souls or
more ... I picked you out from all the rest... For in my
heart I knew... There could not be another one... As
wonderful as you...To me you were perfection or... As
near as that can be...Upon this earth and on this side...
Of God's eternity... Your warmth and understanding and
...The courage you possess...And how you seek unself-
ishly... To bring me happiness.... I chose you for the fair-
ness in... The way you play life's game... And if I had
another chance... My choice would be the same.
