“Ode to Brenda”

Since I took Brenda for my wife

I’ve had an Angel in my life

Her love and kindness and total class

Make my problems always pass

We’ve had our highs and some lows

After 50 years she’s beautiful in buttons and bows

Before her I was lonely even in a crowd

Since meeting her I have been very proud

She asked me one day to come to church

Before that I always seem to be in a lurch

She tries to help everyone that she can

And then cooks a great meal with a frying pan

From a friend she got a recipe for “Trash”

As tasty as that is they could make some cash

Brenda is my strength, my pride and joy

Every time she gets near me my heart says “Oh Boy”

With age she has gotten better like fine wine

Always I will love her until the end of time
