On this day, I want to say
Words that forever will stay
In your heart as well as mine
Words silky, smooth, tender and sweet as wine

You were a flower on a tower 
Plucked and firmly planted in my heart
Protected from life’s harsh weather
Lady, you are a treasure....
The source of joy beyond measure

Your rare beauty, my medicine
Your sweet smile, my cure 
Your gentle laughter, assures
Your firm love has made me sure
With you l am secure.....

Rip not my heart for it is yours
Yours I will not for it is mine
Together we 've been woven 
Tangled....with love’s silk and twine
No one in between, can draw a line

Your hurts are mine as well
As are your pains and gains
Sorrows and joys

Come along with me
To our own paradise
Away from love’s parasites
Those liars, cheats and thieves
Who rob others 
Of love’s joy and bliss
