This week’s poem, called You Are The One, is by JOHN RADFORD

Though I may lose direction, though I may suffer pain,

though I may face misfortune, I remember why you came,

just to be with me always, to be my strength to go on.

Never to fail nor let me down, because you are the one.

Yes, you are the one.

Though I may thirst and hunger, though I may shiver with the cold,

though I may burn in the heat of the sun, I remember what you told,

that you would be with me always, and be my strength to go on.

You would never fail nor let me down, because you are the one.

Yes, you are the one.

Though I may be ridiculed, though I may be lost or hid,

though breath may be knocked from me, I remember what you did,

you came to be with me always, to be my strength to go on.

Never to fail nor let me down, because you are the one.

Yes, you are the one.

Though I may see disaster, though I may be misled,

though I may sit in shadows of death, I remember, in heart and head,

that you would be with me always, and be my strength to go on.

You would never fail, nor let me down, because you are the one.

Yes, you are the one. You are the only one.
