My Valentine For 28 Years

by Ann Stareyes   Feb 7, 2006

When you asked me to marry you
What a special day for me
Tears of joy and happiness
Your wife I wanted to be.

The vows I said to you, I meant
Till death do us part
You swept me off my feet
And you stole my heart.

You walked every step with me
Shared my happiness and pain
You loved me unconditional
I've loved you the same.

When ever I needed you
You were always at my side
You'd wipe the tears away
When they fell from my eyes.

You always provided for our family
A good man you truly are
This is why I fell in love with you
Right at the very start.

So many thought we wouldn't make it
But boy, did we prove 'em wrong
Our love continues to blossom
We know where our hearts belong.

Just having this love that's so sacred
Is the greatest gift of all
Being honest and truthful
Is the most precious gift I can recall.

Another Valentine's Day we share
I say to you with all my heart...

I love you as much today
As I loved you the day we met
Happy Valentine's day, My Love
A Precious Love We've Kept!

True Love does exist, because I was one of the lucky ones....dated my Husband for 3 yrs and been married for 28. I would call that true LOVE!
He's my Valentine Every Day!
