Always Be My Valentine…

Always Be My Valentine

As time goes by from year to year,
One thing is surely true, my dear;
Though decades come and decades go,
Just seeing you sets me aglow.

Time shifts my body; I start to sag,
When I pass a mirror, it can make me gag.
My joints all ache; I can hardly move;
Still a smile from you, and I’m in the groove.

Getting older can be a pain,
But with you along, I can’t complain.
Despite the things that we go through,
I know I’ll never stop loving you.

Your loving heart turns life to play,
As we laugh at time from day to day.
So I write this poem, and I’ll hang my sign,
Saying, “Always Be My Valentine.”

Stay True…

Stay True

Soft caresses, stolen kisses,
precious moments, love and wishes.

Hope, reality, shared dreams,
life is never what it seems.

Secret glances, smiles, a wink,
this is ours, let them think.

Giggles, laughs, giddy heights
when I’m with you, my life, my light.

Tender touches of body and soul,
staying together the ultimate goal

I loved you then, love you now,
trying to show you somehow.

Stay true my darling, for it will be,
our Happy Ever After, wait and see.

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.

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’.
