I fell in love with a girl
Who knew little about
Read or write
But her hands and heart
Taught how love is right

She knew what care
Would lead a man
In the hours of
The skeleton night

Through thick and thin
She stood beside
With her heart bearing
Rose and thorns

She would cry all night
When strength is gone
Praying the days bring
A smooth old sun

Hard feet and arms
She work along, singing
To the birds in garden walk

Fed the poor, took the sick
her arms they found
a sweet relief

Stood for justice, peace and truth
That all may find
a heavenly bliss

Her soul burns a
delightful bright
Telling happy tales of
A love made life

She lives in happiness
Full of light
I wonder if she would
Ever be sad

I fell in love with a girl
Who knew little about
Read or write
But her hands and heart
Taught how love is right

    You did ace this, Mike. Sometimes, love could be cruel and other times sweet. To fall in love is a beautiful thing when you find it in truth. Love is for us all…
    Good job!
