Happy Valentines Day My Love
When we met
I'd almost given up hope
on ever finding someone to
share my life with.
Someone who shared all
of my interests -
Someone who would love all
of my Vietnam Vet friends and
Peanut, my psychopathic dog,
old-time rock and roll and pickup trucks.
Someone who would hitch their wagon
to mine though I had no semblance
of a flight plan, or even a destination I could
pinpoint beyond being true to myself.
And then you were there -
Right there - on the front row there -
And you've been there ever since,
Reminding me every morning when we
wake together that I was right not to give up hope.
I love you more today than yesterday
but less than I will tomorrow.
