    We have stood at the pinnacles of love
    And endured the rough edges of life.
    We have argued, yet loved intimately.
    Oh what a love!...enduring all strife.

    We have been in valleys…
    Tested and tried.
    Wrong decisions blurred our vision
    And we held each other and cried.

    Yet through all of this…
    We are committed to each other for life.
    My hand in yours and a tender kiss,
    I am your woman...forever your wife.

    I will always find sweet refuge
    In the strength of your sweet embrace.
    And on this day sweet Valentine,
    I behold the depth of life...in your face.

    As I bestow upon you the blessings
    Of love on Valentine’s day,
    May you discover precious jewels
    In the things I do...in the things I say.

    Happy Valentine’s Day...My Love!

    <appears suddenly>

    You have captured and shared the joy of true love. Not the lustful here today gone tomorrow kind of love but the everlasting, longsuffering, always enduring kind of love. The kind of love that we all seek. I love this poem, as i am sure you loved writing it.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    <disappears into the dusk>
