A Chapter by Debbie Barry

A love poem for my then-future second husband.




October 1, 1999

I used to see the light
Of sunshine through the window.
Now I see it in your eyes.

I used to feel the warmth
Of sunshine through the window.
Now I feel it in your arms.

I used to see the flowers
Blooming in the sunshine.
Now my heart blooms for your love.

I used to see forever
As a dream of love held distant.
Now forever has begun for me
With your love in my heart.

For Lewis.
