Sometimes I fear she's too far gone
and that it's only a matter of time.
I remember waking with her each dawn
before her graceful beauty so sublime.
Often times she needed more rest
but each sunrise she had a smile
and off she went to do her best
making all our days worthwhile.
Into my life she brought much joy
more than I probably did deserve
no battle for this Helen of Troy
but a blessing forever to preserve.
