Happy Birthday To My Ish
You launched all my mornings with laughter…
You sprinkled my nights with a song.
You made every moment a memory
I’ll treasure as time moves along.
You smothered my lips with your sweetness…
Laced your long loving fingers through mine.
Stared into my soul till I shivered
From feelings only love could define.
You wrapped me in blankets of wonder…
Bridled my breath with each touch.
You warmed my heart with each whisper…
O, my darling, I love you so much.
You’re the one picture love dared to develope…
The best thing to happen to me.
The love of my life and hereafter…
For I’ll love you through eternity
So I just want to tell you I’ve missed you
Every minute since you’ve been away
And, sweetheart, you’ve always been special
So have a special and happy birthday.
(Remembered in Love)

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies,
they will cease; where there are tongues, they
will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
True love does not fail. It loves despite personality defects,
physical blemishes, and mental quirks. Love is deep,
abiding, and eternal. Nothing can bring a sense of security
into the home as true love can.
