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.
