The Support

A poem.

God provides the foundation

On which our home is built

A solid base that anchors it

To soft soil or shifting sand

Your strength is the structure

That keeps this delicate form

From blowing, washing away

When the wind and rain come

Your dedication is the frame

That holds up this fragile life

As it reaches toward heaven

Buttressing its soaring wings

And though we need the Lord

Who shelters and protects us

Our home would lie in ruins

If not held together by you


For my wife.

M.G. Edwards

      Thank you, David! I wrote it as a personal poem for my wife on her birthday. I was planning to keep it private, but we talked about it and thought that others might enjoy it too. I’m happily surprised by the response. I’m glad to share it.
