I've never been a big on buying gifts, but Joe and I always took a moment to make each other something for Valentine's Day. He would always write me a poem. Since I save everything, I would like to share one with you...
"Roses are Red, violets are blue
This year I decided to spend my life with you!
You've captured my soul, you've captured my heart,
Why do I love you? Where do I start?
Is it the warmth I feel knowing you care,
Your beautiful face or the laughter we share.
I know there are times you act like I am not funny,
But trust me, I know your laughing inside honey!
Everyday is better than the past,
Even though my hair is leaving fast!
This year we took a trip to Bolongo bay,
Pure paradise is all I can say.
Sure I loved the beach, the ocean, the palm trees too,
But the real treat was being there with you!
Just a week to relax and just sit back
Oh...and also check out a 70 year old (not the most appropriate :) )
Paradise is an island in the Caribbean Sea,
But it is nothing like the feeling I have when you are with me!
Love you lots - Joe "
I was a little sad this morning - knowing I wouldn't be getting a poem this year. But - two great poets pulled together and gave me one of the best gifts ever - a poem for Valentine's Day. Here it is...
Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'm in heaven
Thinking of you
We'll both miss
Vacationing, Twins Games
And a gross morning kiss
You're my true love
Music is my second
You taught me about fashion
Sparkle, Shimmer 'n Shine
I'm always here
And you should know it
From orbs to psychics
And two talented poets (That's us!)
Pay it Forward
In memory of me
Don't Stop Believin'
Team Vogel we'll always be
Forever and Always
You and Me
Always and Forever
One, Four, Three
Words cannot express how grateful I am for all the love and support I am shown every day. All of you are how I keep on keepin' on. Your notes, cds, kind words, phone calls, smiles, shoulders to cry on, jokes...the list goes on and on. Today I add the Valentine's Day poem. Thank you for giving me the strength when I have a hard time finding my own.
