Today, August 14th, marks the six month point since Jill and I had our first date. Over the last six months, we have grown closer and stronger. She is truly a gift in my life.

Since six months isn't important to most people (and Jill is incredibly realistic on things), I didn't buy a gift; I wrote the poem, instead. I think she'll love this more, don't you?

 

You are my sand; you are my sea
You hold the heart that beats in me
You are my wind; you are my sun
You have been my rock since day one
I can’t believe six months have passed
Yet, what we share is meant to last
I long to see what lies ahead
Down this romantic course we tread.
 
You are my angel without wings
You magnify life’s simpler things
You are my jewel; you are a pearl
You are my one and only, girl
I can’t believe that you are mine
Each day, you are my Valentine
Six months ago, our path began
And, I am proud to be your man.
 
You are my life; you are my breath
I’ll love you ‘til there’s nothing left
Each moment that we share is grand
Our lives as blessed as God had planned
Six months ago was our first date
The day our hearts gave way to fate
Next to a mountain, I am small
But, with you, Jill, I have it all.

Very nice sentiment.
A little contrite.
Poem better served by not trying to rhyme.

Very nice poem, Nate. Very well done and a nice tribute. I also write about my love, CJ, who's a member and writer here, too. I wrote an article called, "The Girl With the Blue Eyes" that tells how we met again after nearly 50 years. Good to meet you.
