To my man...

I dreamt of you before we met
I willed you with all my heart
to seek me out from the cold and wet
and shelter me from the dark
It took so long to find you
and Life, she took her toll
and the pure heart that was meant for you
was wounded to the soul
But Life she had not spared you a fall
before we met you’d suffered it all
And so there we were, each in this world alone
destined to meet and create a home
destined to learn to love once more
but more truly and deeply and with all of our souls
Over the years you have healed my heart
more than you ever will know
you may roll your eyes at my affection
but I know it does strike home
I see the way you look at me
when you think my mind’s elsewhere
I see the smile dancing in your eyes
when you forget yourself and stare
I hear the purring escape your lips
when you embrace me close
when we kiss
I know your heart
I know you
We were meant to be I know its true
So nevermind the roses, and chocolates and all that jazz
material possessions come and go
Its our love that always lasts
You have given me the greatest gift anybodies known
You have fathered me our daughter and created for us
a safe happy Home…

To my man...
