To Jody With Love

Love of my Life

Copyright 6/26/00

You are my heart

You have heard it said

When we are apart

I am emotionally dead.

You give me life

In every way, every day.

Having you as my wife,

Was God’s answer for what I prayed.

My life with you, Joanne,

Has been heaven on earth,

And I will do all I can

To make you see your worth.

You have been a part of me for so long,

I can’t exist without you, see?

Cause it is a fact that when you are gone,

There is no me.

Like a shadow you are my other

Always by my side and in my mind.

Your love unlike that of a one night lover,

Spans the ages and all time.

I can hardly wait til retirement day,

When we can spend more time together.

Going here, doing that, a whole lot of play,

Regardless of the weather.

Through the years we have weathered,

Storms that threatened to pull us apart.

But because our thoughts and psyche’s were tightly tethered,

The world couldn’t separate that which was joined at the heart.

On this Valentines day we don’t need to ask each other to be mine

We have been so, since the beginning of time.

Ageless is our love and so it is as it should be

I am you and you are me.
