Warm is your spirit of being.
Affection with others you share.
Nurturing a desire for singing.
Drowning your own troubles and cares.
Accepting life’s stinging and snares.
Wanda, you are a great inspiration to me,
as I watch you in your walk of life.
You go on from day to day,
whether handed happiness or strife.
God works in mysterious ways,
His wonders to perform.
Why at this time in my life,
you have so quietly come.
This love that has come,
from the well deep inside,
Is a surprise to me,
for I thought the well had dried.
I thought that I was empty,
and had nothing left to give.
But God brought us closer together,
a new hope to me to give.
But now I see that I was wrong,
and God knows what is best.
And hope that through life’s journey,
our friendship will pass all of the tests.
Thank You Wanda for being my friend,
May 8, 1988
