That Someone Special - written by Richard Netherland Cook

One of the special writers that has been inspirational with my interest in writing poems is Richard Netherland Cook. He has that special touch, one that not only must touch the heart of his wife, but reaches out to others to show the softness in the words of a very appearent strong man. I've read EVERY poem that I can find written by this man, and I must say that his poems give special meaning to just about every kind of poem imaginable. His poems are caring and sincere, truthful and such a variety, that should touch the hearts of every type of personality on the face of this earth.
Immediately below is a poem that has been dedicated to his wife of 47 years. I highly doubt if I will ever reach that milestone in marriage, but for whatever days I have left in this world, I want my spouse to know that every day because of her, is another special day that I've been blessed by God to have sharing my life with her. I cannot find a more special way to outwardly show my love to her, except in meaningful words in the form of a poem.

That Someone Special

She is the apple of my eye,
The reason that I live.
She is all that I could wish for.
My heart to her I give.

It is for that someone special,
These words that I do pen,
To thank her for always being,
My wife and my best friend.

She has the will to live until,
The last breath she does take,
There is the love within her heart,
Such good memories to make.

She is the sunshine in my morning,
The star that's in my sky,
And if I should ever lose her,
Then I would surely die.

She stands always at my side,
No matter what comes our way.
She comforts me with steadfast love,
Each and every day.

She carries many burdens,
And her heart is sometimes broken,
By all the thanks she never gets,
And all the words unspoken

I know her life is not her own,
I always seem so needy,
And asking her to do one more thing,
I feel so really greedy.

How can I ever thank her,
For all she has done for me?
I can only give her all my heart,
And love her to eternity.

I hope that when the end comes,
And she meets God face to face,
He will tell her that in Heaven,
She has a special place.
