Happy Birthday!


Today Sofia celebrates an indeterminate age (as she has for the last many years ;-)

There are things I'd like to say
to you my love on your special day:

I am forever thankful God sent you my way.

Like a gift from up above,
you showed me how it is to feel real love.

I know many mountains we've had to climb
and sometimes forever has seemed like a very long time.

Yes, we've endured our share of pain,
but together we have so much to gain.

Bigger mountains may lie ahead,
but together there is no hill we can not tread.

So always remember my love for you,
and there is nothing together we can not do.

I'll be here forever - my love is true.
The person beside me, that would be you.


Poem was nabbed from here.

breal: yes, she has enriched my life. Thanks.

tena: most female friends I have are not sensitive about their age. Sofia and another are the only two I can think of that are.

ancilla: thanks! I like the new avatar.

dandan: thanks. Expressing affection is always difficult. The worst is to hope for affirmation and not to get it.

MOI: thanks. I think if you were married to me, you might have a different view. I am quite atypical and pose lots of challenges for Sofia.
