For James, with Love
I thought myself content
to live alone
until you came along
my stalwart knight
to slay, with your keen sword
of winning words
the dragon of loneliness 
I thought with my dog, Rocky
by my side
(my little white Shih Tzu)
I’d face the future unafraid
need nothing more
than my circle
of fellow writers and friends 
I felt the silent company
of books
would see me through
I’d lose myself in tomes
of others’ lives
I didn’t know the joy
of days and nights with you 
Poet of mine, your words
your eyes of azure blue
your smile, your wisdom
and a heart that’s true
have re-arranged my world
and made it shine
yes, made it shine like new 
      Norma West Linder

  1. Norma, I love this poem as I know both of you. It brings tears to my eyes as I realize how fortunate you are to have found each other. May God give you many happy years together.
