By Don Rath Jr
in the alone-ness of my thoughts
in my moments of great despair,
in those same moments,
held me in your arms,
helped me to realize that without you
I would be truly alone.
… and how,
without your love,
and my loving you,
I would have no meaning, reason or purpose.
So, I thank you, warmly, from the depths of my soul
for loving me, for being there,
for allowing me to love you and for making
despair a stranger to me.
