You took me away
On an adventure one day
The road ahead wound and curved

It was green springtime
Fleeting for California
We laughed at the squirrels

Over and over
Around the bends higher and
Higher we climbed to ascend

Reaching the top we
Stepped to the edge I just gasped
The top of the World

You showed me the world
As I had never seen it
So profound and powerful

It went to my core
Your blue eyes met mine and I
Simply shook from the power

The love so profound
It carried me through the years
Children and laughter

Fighting and tears we
Persevered through it always
Even when drifting

Dedicated to my
Husband Eugene “Shorty”

Who took me to the top of the world 26 years ago.
