A poetic tribute to the romance of a lifetime


 

 

 

                   Anniversary 
                                                                                       (Authored and recited by Richard Lee Orey)

 
                                                                       O, My Love
                                                                       When my heart was beating faster
                                                                       And my breath was taken away
                                                                       When I was frozen in my footsteps
                                                                       And all I could do was stay
                                                                       When your image filled my eyes
                                                                       And your presence lived in my heart
                                                                       When your smile lit my fire
                                                                       And I prayed we'd never part
                                                                       When I heard your whispered words
                                                                       And true love is what you tell
                                                                       When I knew I'd lost my soul
                                                                       And was living in your spell
                                                                       When I knew that life was empty
                                                                       And there was nothing real in view
                                                                       That my days would all be wasted
                                                                        Without sharing my love with you
                                                                       Then I knew our moon would rise
                                                                       While our sun was shining true
                                                                       And my future held no meaning
                                                                       Without sharing my love with you
                    
                                                                       Still others stood and preached their hearts
                                                                       And wanted to win your love
                                                                        I didn't know how to make my case
                                                                        Without help from up above
                     
                                                                        So I offered up my spirit
                                                                        And prayed you'd see the light
                                                                        That my love would show the way
                                                                        Like the stars in dark of night
                                                                        That your heart would beat much faster
                                                                        And your breath would go away
                                                                        That your footsteps would be frozen
                                                                        And you'd only want to stay
                                                                        That my image would fill your eyes
                                                                        And my presence would live in your heart
                                                                        That my smile would light your fire
                                                                        And you'd pray we'd never part
                                                                        That you'd hear my whispered words
                                                                        And know true love is what I tell
                                                                        That you'd know you'd lost your soul
                                                                        And were living in my spell
                                                                       That you'd know your life was empty
                                                                        And there was nothing real to see
                                                                        And your days would all be wasted
                                                                        Without sharing your love with me
                                                                        Well, now we know our moon has risen 
                                                                        While our sun is shining true
                                                                        And our lives have had real meaning
                                                                        Because you and me are two
                                                                        O, in all the years we've shared our love
                                                                        There's been no other view
                                                                        The only thing that really matters
                                                                         Is sharing my love with you
                                                                         Yes, the only thing that really matters
                                                                         Is sharing my love with you.

Your poem is beautiful and a wonderful tribute to Jodi for the many years of love and companionship that you've shared. Your recitation added additional sentenmentality to the lyrics. Well done, Richard, and I hope the day is filled with joy, love, and the celebration of two loving hearts.
