    :sand: I'm not sure if I've ever given real love much thought
    or taken the time to recognize what it's all about
    I gather like some it's going through the motions or just something after
    awhile...passes in time
    I should've told you how beautiful you truly are
    You always were one to overlook the bad yet doing the best
    to make others happy...
    One who knows what to say , how to deliver , and yet all the while
    an excellent listener
    Of course...you take life seriously even to the point of being overly
    sympathetic...I love you !
    Not many are tuned into the feelings of others and after all this time
    I'm thankful to be by your side
    And just when you think no one's listening remember...I'm here ,
    genuine , sincere , and willing to make it happen when all others...
    are in doubt because time has taught me real love is something many
    still can't grasp , yet all the while behaving as if they really knew you !
    Hey I do !
