'Hold tight my heart, don't let it fall on slippery ways, for thy are all I ever wanted, all I ever needed; the greatest of all my earthly loves.
When doubt was raised, you were there to quell and prevent its suffication of my inner desires. When pain was present, your touch of companionship and endearing sensitivity lessened it to the extent that it was quickly forgotten and disappeared down the drain of despair you shielded me from.
Without you I would never have travelled as far down the road of happiness and humanity that I walked; without you I would not have felt the flutter of a butterfly's wings as it brushed passed my face. For it was you who softened my senses and enlarged my appreciation for all that surrounds us in Nature, and by your doing you have nutured in me all that is good and wholesome to behold.
For this I will remain forever grateful and will carry such gratitude with me from this life to the next in sweet surrender. I love you, Sheila Forde, my one true love xxx' William Forde: Copyright: November 2014.
