You always give me sweet feelings
of pure happiness, without a single
flower in sight; just your smiling
presence, that happy thrill of being
with you is all that I desire.
Your faith in my achievements keeps
me grounded there's no doubt, for
without your positive support I might
feel a little off track,
I'd be consumed in lonely silence:
flying like a misplaced spring
love bird, eager to loom;
spread my wings, fly away for good,
tripping on emanating white
feathery clouds, searching for plump;
downy quilts and dreamy pillows,
just right for my mirage of imagined
You illuminate my darkness, tolerant as
you are: when I pour out my rebellious,
cruel nightmares; you're always there,
listening till my storm recedes.
So: Valentine share a glass this day,
draw deep breath; and I will break fourth
from any fears, tracing our journey
of nearly twenty two years;
a different kind of love now from when
we first met...spilling, overflowing our
simple pleasures into the future; whatever
it may hold, for together we can always
find our hearts desires.
