October 4, 1986

 

shadows flit across the floor

here then gone away

endless cycle:

light

shadow

you

moving alive

 

by the shadow you cast

we see who you are

 

children of Light

by your deeds are you known

as in darkness you wander

eternally home

look forward!

God’s hand is near

the light that casts the shadow

the higher voice you hear

 

as now in life you travel

side by side your way

I pray the God to guide you

onward to that day

when together we shall praise Him

and thank Him for His love

 

God bless you both forever

in life

in love

in Him

 

To Andy and Yvonne, October 4, 1986.  On the

shadows at their dance, September 20, 1986.

Andy sang this to Beth and I at our own wedding

three years later.
