Raymond A. Foss Poems
Back to Poems Page
I Has Gained Everything by Raymond A. Foss
Before you came along, I was sure
oh so sure, that I was in control
that I could change the world
That the world was watching me
that I could be all there was to be
But without your love
I was the clanging gong
off key and alone

With your love, I can move mountains
I can fly, in your arms, reach my dreams
sail to uncharted shores
find my way through the challenges of life
because you are there, with me

I thank the Lord for this day
when we can become one, husband and wife
share our love with our families, our friends
Are you watching dad? I hope you’re happy too
Because she is with me, you know I’m safe

To you I need to say, that though I have traveled
and run many miles,
it is with you that I find my way
with you by my side that
I can run the race of my life
with you I can be sure of my footsteps,
that I won’t be lost
with you in my life
and in my heart,
I have gained everything
