Pain today has been beyond all rational understanding, but I am nonetheless the luckiest man alive.
What confidence remains in me, I draw from Barbara's strength. (Confident is this week's Five Minute Friday word-prompt.)
In some sweet place ere hell came down
to mutilate and make of life
a scourging and a thorny crown,
I courted me a wife.
We met upon the Internet
and love grew from afar
so that when we finally met
I knew I’d found my Star.
Romance was never in my blood
and ‘fluttery’? Not really,
but for Barb there came a flood
of heart-tide…oh so freely!
Darling, in these days of wracking pain
your love sustains; I’d do it all again.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.
