Tag Archives: my Jonathan



(In so many words…can be sung to the tune of The Yellow Rose of Texas!)


I’ve known my Jonathan for years,

Since nineteen eighty-eight…

He’s always helped me face my fears

Though sometimes they were great,

We made a promise under God

To always live for Him…

Although living’s not easy

God has filled it to the brim!

I love my Jonathan because

He never has walked out,

Although he can get frustrated

Enough to loudly shout…

But he quickly apologizes

For making a scene

And though he sometimes gets upset…

He never has been mean!

He pushes himself often

And sleeps whene’er he can,

I try not to disturb him

Unless I’m in a jam…

He loves me more than anyone

Except for his Lord,

He studies Bible on his own

And keeps his faith assured!

Many times he’s put me first

And I get the last cup,

Of coffee or of soda…

If it’s flat he drinks it up;

He does most of the cooking

But sometimes I surprise

Him with dinner ready,

To light up his weary eyes!

We work together at the chores

To keep our apartment clean,

We’re always sorting papers

And keeping bills where they are seen…

We’ve rearranged the furniture

So often I can tell

From his expression when the changes

Don’t work out so well!

My Jonathan–a “gift of God”—

Or so his name means,

Puts me first in nearly everything…

Fulfilling all my dreams;

He should take better care

Of himself and not just me…

I want us together for the Rapture,

In love eternally!
