As You Are Mine

Note from Susan Richter-Beckley - 7 Jun 2007: This morning I was looking through a little box on my dresser for something else and came across a crumbling piece of newspaper...it was a poem Daddy had cut out of the paper when he and Mom were first married and had given to her. She kept it in her wallet for the rest of her life. She made me promise to always keep it. I'm afraid it's not all together anymore---but I wrote down what it said before it deteriorated too much. It reads:

As You Are Mine

I do not own the railroads or
The ocean liners new
I do not have a fortune, dear
That I can offer you
I am no genius and
I am no millionaire
And all my promises are
Just another breath of air
But I have faith in God and I
Have confidence today
That you will be beside me
As I go on my way
It matters not what others think
About humanity
It matters not how rich they are
Or poor my circumstance
As long as you belong to me
I have a golden chance.
