LOVE POEM TO MY WIFE
(on the occasion of our fifth Wedding Anniversary-15.11.1995)

Five years on we still are one
The world still is as it always was
But we see each other in a current light
Solidness carries through our troubles
Care, kindness and compassion is you
Every avenue you leave explored
Every bud you make flower bright
Lucky to be still as one
We view the passing leaves of Autumn
As if they clear for a new future
We are that yet to come
As waves crash harsh
We stand on the rocks of life
And still see through our days
Together but strengthened by our love
Blown away by troubled winds
Our book is still open
No dust has settled on that page
Still we are read by fate though
Many years will still come
For us to see the changes
Trials, happinesses, tragedies
Whether for us or not
Future is not yet come
But bleak or bright
We shall, fate willing see this
Accept this day, my love, my heart
