A Saturday Celebration: St. Valentine’s Day Is a new favorite haunt of mine. Today they are celebrating Valentines Day and asking everyone to share a poem... We hope to see you joining in too..... OURS IS ...


I didn't have much left
as far as I could see,
the roads I had traveled
had left me so weary,
but the good Lord wasn't
quite done with me just yet,
that is why He brought you
into my life, I bet.

Side by side as we worked,
you showed me a new trade,
and together we found
a new friendship was made.
It didn't take very long
till your kiss did ignite,
while each day we could feel
that our hearts did unite.

We made it official,
we took that sacred vow,
I can hardly believe
that five years have gone now.
When I wake to your kiss
each and every day,
I have to thank the Lord
that He showed me the way.

It's the way you do things
most men would never do,
the way that you always
say you love me too,
the way that you never
have a bad thing to say,
the way that you always
do your work every day.

It's the way that your snore
(wakes me up in the night,)
The way you'll roll over,
stop snoring, hold me tight,
It's your touch, your laughter,
and the tears you cry too,
It's the sweet way you love
that paved the way to you.
