Love Surpasses All By: Frances McCrory Meservy April 1967 Published World of Poetry @ 2007

God made you for me

He gave me patience for you

He knew impatience could not see

What the fullness of love would do.


The Navy keeps us apart

But our love will always be true

We will never truly part

Because our love is true blue.


I miss our long talks

And our wonderful close moments

I miss our hand in hand walks

And the loving treatments.


Time passes fast

And we’ll hold each other again

As we have in the past.

Our love is stronger than when it first began.
