    I was asked if I could love
    you forever for it’s such a
    long time and yet what I see
    is a blink in my father’s eye;

    I love you unlike no other
    I adore you with the beating
    of my heart and everyday I
    commit to celebrating you;

    I seek to walk with you
    when the seasons greet
    and hold you when the
    dusk meets the dawn;

    I want to sing when the
    Seed is planted and rejoice
    when the harvest sees the
    first light of a new day;

    I want to carry you through
    the sands of life covering your
    smile in a sea of silk and lace to
    place within the strength of me;

    I love to love the essences of you
    Holding you close to my heart and
    Lifting you high above the world so
    that you touch the hem of His garment;

    I want to walk with you singing the
    Songs of Solomon and dance with
    you like David who wrote the words
    of virtue describing the wonder of you;

    you are the 8th wonder of the world
    for in all that GOD had done He has
    blessed me with the chance to experience
    a gift many men seek but few find;

    I celebrate you as Valentine’s day becomes
    A lifestyle and as Christmas turns into
    A daily walk as long as I can hold you close
    To the innermost places of my heart;

    I celebrate you not like the party of your birth
    But the festival of our rebirth, a reunion of one
    I sought so long ago who has now returned to
    Be a part of me in times of forever and true;

    I love you and that will never changed
    Unlike the seasons, unlike time but know
    That as we see fall move away for winter to
    Return it is I who will keep you safe and warm;

    I celebrate you today, tomorrow , and forever
    60 years and more….i love you

    i am quieted by your words? Two of me? Well, I would hope not...It was such a long journey to reach the garden of serenity that i rest in now :lol: But if there is another, then i hope that they cross your path on the whisper of God formed just for you...
