Today is Valentine’s Day, as we celebrate more love than we usually do, let me share a poem I have written years ago for my then boyfriend, now husband. I wrote this even before we got engaged without realizing that this would be an oath of a love that will forever hold true. Actually, every time I recite (silently) or read this poem, I cry, not of sadness of course. Just because I meant every word I have written.
Here it is, and yes, it’s titled simply:
I love you, Mike
I love you mike, I really do
What I want most is to be with you.
My dreams are scarce as compared
To my yearning of the days we’d shared
I love you mike, for years to come
You would always be my only one.
The life I seek would not suffice
If not spent by your side.
I love you mike, from this day on
Ours is a love meant to grow strong
I see tomorrow with my hands locked on yours
With this…. I ask for no more.
If these are not enough to say my oath
Of a love that will forever hold
I love you mike, Come what may
I’ll stay with you ’til my last day.
