He doesn’t know her anymore
but she knows who he is.
Her husband, and her sweetheart
and father of their kids.
She made a humble vow to him
upon their wedding day
that she would love and cherish,
and honor come what may.
There is no greater test of love,
or greater lesson learned,
than from those whose given love
no longer is returned.
His memory has been taken
but will one day be restored
by the grace and healing power
that will come from our dear Lord.
What pure and heartfelt gratitude
that day will be expressed
by he who’s faithful sweetheart
passed love’s greatest test.
