Happy Anniversary #3

T & I decided that we didn't want to spend money on cards for our anniversary, & she instead to write her a poem. Unfortunately, she's never seen my attempts at making words rhyme. It's not a pretty sight. And I'm not kidding. Apparently, being a distant cousin to Longfellow (no, really, I am!) doesn't automatically make one good at writing prose. So, in an effort to schmooze her with words that not only convey my love & adoration for her, but also sound nice together & don't start with "Roses are red...," I've decided to leave the rhyming to the experts.

I love you Beautiful. Thank you for three wonderful years. Here's to a lifetime more.

Looks like we made it
Look how far we've come, my baby

~Still the One, Shania Twain

I'm gonna love you forever
forever & ever, Amen
As long as old men
sit & talk about the weather
As long as old women
sit & talk about old men

If you wonder how long I'll be faithful
I'll be happy to tell you again
I'm gonna love you
forever & ever
Forever & ever, Amen

~Forever & Ever, Amen, Randy Travis

Sometimes it amazes me
How strong the power of love can be
Sometimes you just take my breath away

Your beauty is there in all I see
And when I feel your eyes on me
Oh don't you know you just take my breath away

~You Take My Breath Away, Eva Cassidy

I've found a dream
that I can speak to
A dream that I can call my own

I've found a thrill
to press my cheek to
A thrill that I have never known

~At Last, Etta James

The smile on your face
let's me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes
saying you'll never leave me
The touch of your hand
says you'll catch me
if ever I fall

~When You Say Nothing At All, Alison Krauss

So sing with me softly
As the day turns into night
& later I'll dream
of paradise with you
I love you
& good night

~Anniversary Song, Eva Cassidy
