About You...

I don't know what it is
or what you do,
but something about you,
makes me yearn to be with you.
There's a quality in your voice
and in your enigmatic smile
that makes me feel stronger,
all my dreams worthwhile.
You warmed my heart
with your caring nature
and stroked my soul
with your gentle touch.
You move me like no one else--
I've never needed someone so much.
I'm not sure why,
I love you like I do;
I only know that I want
to be with you.

I'll Shelter You...

I wish I could give
you a castle,
a strong fortress
to protect you
from the storm,
but I can only
offer you my heart.
Yet I vow that
this gift will be
more enduring,
than any fortress
made of stone,
and the love within
will shelter you
through all weather,
and keep you warm forever.

Hold My Heart...

I know just how much
you love me,

You're the only one
who would let me know
if my slip was hanging
below my hem or my
mascara was running
down my cheeks.

You went to the store
in the middle of the night
to get me a candy bar,
even though I wasn't pregnant.

You encourage me when I
try a new diet, but you let
me know that you appreciate me
just how I am.

And no matter how foolish
I behave or how wrong I am,
you never think less of me.

You listen with interest when
I carry on about my latest
garage sale treasures.

Even when I talk about
the same thing a trillion times,
you're always willing to listen.

And you always keep my deepest
secrets safe, even if they're
juicy and well worth telling.

You always call me
when you're away,
and you even let me know
when you're going to be late.

You always rush to me
first when there's
bad or good news to share.

Even when we disagree,
you always make sure that
we settle our differences
and go to bed as friends.

And when I'm full of self-doubt,
you always make me believe
in the best of me.

And I can only say
that I love you
all the more for
these little special
and wonderful things.
And that the time we
spend together,
the plans we make,
and the dreams we share
are the most important
things in my life.

I always feel better
and stronger when you're near,
and I cherish every moment
of my life with you,
because you're
not only the
love of my life,
but you're also
my best friend.
And I hope you know that
you'll always hold
my heart in your hands.

Out of the Blue...

Out of the blue,
you entered my life
and stole my loneliness and heartache.
You made me believe in miracles,
in living happily-ever-after.
You touched my heart
with music and laughter.
You painted my world
with rainbows and sunshine.
You showed me that true love exists.
You opened my mind,
inspiring hope and dreams.
Now I appreciate the snowflakes
in the winter
and the flowers in the spring.
Now I can see the beauty
in everything.
You made me want to try,
and you've shown me that
it's possible to fly
on the wings of love.
Out of the blue,
I fell in love with you.
You came into my life
to love me
and for that I'll always
be grateful,
my heart ever faithful,
to you and our love.

Celebrate the Love...

You're quite simply,
the best thing that has
ever happened to me.
Your caring heart,
and encouragement
has taught me to
believe in me.
And the times we've spent
chatting and enjoying
each other's company
has made me believe
in the miracle of love.
You have become
my greatest dream,
and every moment
that I'm away from you,
I yearn to be there,
enjoying quiet moments
wrapped in your arms;
for nothing has ever
meant as much to me
or has affected my life
the way you have.
And I celebrate the love
and beauty of life that
we're discovering together.

Sailing On Dreams of You...

I searched long,
and I struggled endlessly
for a dream.
The dream seemed impossible,
so far away...
At times I thought I'd
never find it.
But it arrived suddenly.
And it was far better than
I could have ever imagined--
only it was not what I'd expected.
For how was I to know that
I'd find my dream in you?
The dream is not about fame or fortune,
and it's not about power or success;
the dream arrived via the heart,
built out of emotion
and borne of love.
The dream is as pure as a dove
circling heaven,
and it's blessed by legions of angels;
it's an awakening of the soul,
bringing me closer to God,
and making me see the goodness
in all things.
Now I feel complete at last,
and through the strength you've given me,
I feel as if I can accomplish anything.
Now I'm sailing on these dreams of you.
There's nothing in life that I'd rather do,
than dedicate my heart and soul
to a lifetime of loving you.

When I Met You...

When I met you,
the stars became mine.
I could see the dreams
I'd cast upon them long ago.
And I realized,
for the first time,
that my dreams
weren't as far-fetched
and distant
as I'd imagined.

There was magic in the
way you said my name
that reached deep inside me
and lit up my world
like a sky full of stars.
I'd float through the days
with the deep and
overwhelming happiness
of a six-year old
on Christmas morning.

I became a new person.
I noticed that when I was
in the company of others,
I was suddenly
talking a little louder
and holding myself prouder,
because I carried you with me.
And all the while,
I felt like I was harboring
a wonderful secret,
a rare and splendid find
that brought the kind of bliss
no other mortal had ever felt.

You affected me
like nothing else
ever has or ever will.

By the way, did I mention
that you still make me feel
this way?
