Your Face…

Your Face

When I looked up and saw your face,
I knew no-one else could ever replace,
Your gorgeous lips, your eyes and smile,
You fill my tummy with butterflies.
To think that you are mine all mine
I love you to the end of time.

– Kate Andrews

Ode To Ricky…

Ode To Ricky

Your feet smell, but I love you,
Is that not enough?
You’re gorgeous in every single way,
Though your elbow skin is rough!

I’m only messin’ honestly,
to me, you are perfection.
If I were you I’d spend every minute
staring at my reflection!

I’m trying to think of how I can say,
how much you mean to me,
but my words just seem so weak, just like
a very milky tea.

And so I shall write this poem to you,
hoping you see the total truth,
that since we met you brought me happiness,
and our children are the proof.

So thank-you, my sweet husband,
for making every day a complete blessing,
I just hope you believe the words I say,
and this time, I ain’t messin’.

– Carrie Talbot Ashby

For You…

For You

I need to tell you,
Every single day,
That you affect my life,
In a very special way.

When I wake up in the morning,
You are always there.
I wake up cozy with the knowledge
That you truly, deeply care.

Our children are so loved
And living lives of their own,
I know that they are happy
With all the memories we have sown.

As we now grow old together,
Every single day,
I want to affect your life,
In a very special way.

I want you to know,
As we close our eyes each night,
That you are in my thoughts, my love
As the darkness steals the light.

To My Dear and Loving Husband

To My Dear and Loving Husband

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let’s so persevere,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.
