Forever I Will



As I sit here
I search my heart
For the words to express my inner most thoughts
My hand glides across the paper
In short strokes
It all seems so trivial and ordinary
Compared to what I feel for you
I crumple the paper and start over
Seeking for "that" word
That will say it all
That word that when you read it
You will instantly know how I feel
Its so close
I can almost touch it
Its on the tip of my tongue
But I cannot find it
No matter how hard I search
It escapes me
I will have to be a thief
Stealing age old words
Shared by millions
They are not original
But as I think of them
It feels as if I created them
I treasure you as a person
And I cherish you as a soul
I long and desire to hold you near
For as many days as God allows me to breathe
I immediately realize that my last thought as I write this
Was the same as my very first
I started this letter because I love you
I sought for words to express that
But decided to choose
The three very words
That have been chosen for centuries
They are simply
"I love you"
And I do
And
Forever I will!

Hello, SB!!! :) Umm...I just happened upon this poem somewhere. I don't know who the author is (other than the initials). It was one of those poems that really caught my attention, though. :)

I think the kids and I are going to watch my 6 year old niece play T-Ball in a little bit. That should be fun. I get a kick out of the little ones. Maybe I can get some pics. :)

Hope you have a good day today, too. Looks like it's going to be really nice and sunshiny out. :) I sure do love the Sunshine...it always makes me happy.
