Here is a tri-fall of my own:


JUST FOR YOU


Ill catch you if you fall
lift you up
when others choose to walk away
I will help you stand tall
share the cup
of pain and grief that comes your day

theres not one single thing
I wont do
to make your life a happy place
songs of sweet joy Ill sing
just for you
and pray God showers you with grace

you mean the world to me
my whole life
I have placed in your loving care
for all eternity
dearest wife
you are the answer to my prayer
