The Life That I Have (by Leo Marks)

The life that I have

Is all that I have

And the life that I have

Is yours.

The love that I have

Of the life that I have

Is yours and yours and yours.

A sleep I shall have

A rest I shall have

Yet death will be but a pause.

For the peace of my years

In the long green grass

Will be yours and yours and yours.

Written by Leo Marks, and presented here In Loving Memory Of My Wife, Gwen. I found  a copy of this poem folded up her purse after she had passed. A beautiful poem, dedicated to my beautiful wife.

    A wonderful piece of poetry, filled with emotion. I don’t think there could be a more fitting dedication to Gwen.
