Birthday, Every Day, Forever And A Day


In honor of my wife’s upcoming birthday (which also gets me out of having to find a parking spot among three-foot high mounds of snow…):

I was all set to seek a card,

To tell you how I feel,

But I say it to you every day,

And you know that it’s real.


We’ve been together all this time,

Years now approaching thirty-five,

But know that as they’ve rolled along,

My love grows deeper, more alive.


We cannot know tomorrow’s plan,

We cannot know of future things,

But know this my love for it is true,

Forever we’re one with what life brings.

  5. Bruce, I’d say your love for your wife sounds pretty darn special, and rivals that of my own for my wife. That makes us a couple of pretty lucky guys.
