To My Wife

I can fight a great war, and lose every battle
Ride a mighty steed, and fall off of my saddle
Sail across the ocean just to watch my boat sink
Pilot an airplane just to crash it in one blink
Build a reaching tower that crumbles in one day
Plant a fragrant flower that withers and turns gray
Lose all my money, all my fortune and my fame
Attain no achievement and deserve no acclaim
Become shriveled and withered, crushed, broken, and lame
If all of this happens and you love me the same
Then my life is not worthless and hope will remain
– Nikolay Terekhin
