Are  you  still  my  Valentine

The  better  part  of  twenty  years
I’ve  lived  within  your  smile
With  fast  approaching  Golden  years
I’ve  loved  you  all  the  while

I  used  to  wine  and  dine  you
then  dance  the  night  away
It’s  McDonalds  now  and  curly  fries
that  brightens  up  our  day

We  used  to  kick  our  shoes  off
while  walking  on  the  beach
Now  we’re  dragged  around  the  the  block
our  dog  just  hates  the  leash

Remember  when  we’d  watch  the  clouds
until  the  stars  arrived
Then  twinkle  twinkle  make  a  wish
‘twas  good  to  be  alive

Three  kids  a  dog  and  a  grandson  too
lets  not  forget  our  pills
You’re  getting  gray  I’m  almost  bald
and  we’ve  got  a  lot  of  bills

But  always  when  I  gaze  at  you
I  see  my  Valentine
Because  long  ago  upon  that  star
my  wish  “please  make  her  mine”

Wow, this poem is so sweet and heartfelt. Whoever you are giving this to has to be someone very special. There is something special to be said about growing old with someone. Well done.

Thankyou everyone ... I married this Valentine 19 years ago and I sent her this as an e-card ... the kids called her to see
'her' e-mail ... she's been nice to me all
evening ... maybe I should write to her more often!

This was so very sweet!  What a loving relationship, even though those bills pile and things are not as they were, sounds like love to me! Very touching!

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?

Oh so sweet, but I must say, sometimes things change like you have stated, but that doesnt mean its bad, lives get busy, plans get changed,  but it always still seems worth it, doesnt it?  Im sure she is and always will 'still be your valentine'  Especially after this beautiful poem!

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!

You indeed are blessed, I can't wait for Mike and I to be celebrating 20 instead of #1...but I am excited, because 2-14-00 is the end of our first year and I look to the future with hope and joy.

Beautiful sweet words!

This is my 20th Valentine's Day with my husband, and I know the times you talk of, those days full of little minutes.  So nice that love remains.  Lovely poem.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Isn't life grant
Such lovely poem you done
I guess it's time for you to take your eyes of the stars and look at her, I see she wants to kiss yah  
Nice poem , realy nice

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Rex, this was a delightful read..as someone said, a definite Hallmark moment. I was married 20 years before my divorce 3 years ago and I can totally relate to all you said, all you shared, and how times change but the love remains. Congratulations on seeing your dream and your commitment through, she is a lucky lady
