kimblanchard Posted July 1, 2003 Share Posted July 1, 2003 I am posting a poem I wrote last February that was used on the front of the bulletin at Mike's funeral. If you would like a copy of the bulletin, complete with pictures, send me your address via e-mail here. - Hugs, Shannon Do You Make Coffee? I wish I was a woman of greater faith, Who willingly gives up her husband to your care Knowing that you love him more and want him But Heavenly Father, my soul and heart is laid bare. Who will tell me that they love me Every morning when I rise, Who will make me feel special By seeing the love in his eyes. Who will make my morning coffee, And help me make the bed, Who will give me cash to tide me over, When my checkbook balance is in the red. Who will pat my head so gently As he passes through the room, Who will be the man who calls to tell me Sweetie, I’ll be coming home soon. Who will help me with the dishes, And wipe my frown away With a simple phrase of love Like “Everything’s going to be okay.” Who will check my tire pressure, And tell me to change my oil, Who will pick our garden flowers And lovingly work the soil? Who will make my bad days good, When I come home all a’flustering, Who will hold out his arms for a hug When no words will change a thing Who will help clear the table, At holiday’s dinners with me, Who will carve our turkeys When it has always been he. Who will I call when a decision Alone I will have to make He has always been the tie breaker Even if his vote I didn’t take. Who will comfort and console me, When my heart is full of pain Who will be the laughter and my sunshine When my life is full of rain? Who will sit and sup with me Night after lonely night? Who can do nothing with me And have it feel so right. The life we built together Too quickly quickly passed Dear Lord I want to start over Our lives just went too fast. I know that you are here As you always have been and will be I’m comforted by that fact. But dear Lord do you make coffee? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
