On Your First Birthday Together

Tiggy T and I just celebrated her first birthday with us as a couple.  This lady is more precious to me than my words can hope to say.   I told her as a last birthday present to her that I would write a poem for her just as I write each year for my little girls.  She smiled at that.  I’ll take that as a go ahead and do my worse?

On Your first Birthday Together
by Michael Romani

Looking out across the million mile ocean
I find myself adrift deep in my emotion
Thinking back from the time together
Realizing that each day just gets better

I found myself thinking of the night we met
From the first moment knowing I would not forget
Nor do I believe that I'll ever have cause to regret
Or least I'm sure enough to take that bet

It was easy to see, you're a one of a kind edition
Your heart runs deep and I love you without condition
You have brought bliss, joy and mostly harmony
Since the first moment, you've been my family

Your loving care has filled my life with pleasure
Each day taken breath by breath in fullest measure
And now, my love, this is your sweet birthday
So, I give you reasons to smile in every single way

Every single way that I know or might guess
To show you that I love you and I confess
That I hope to spend every future birthday
Showing you that I love you in every way

We laid there talking, smiling, face to face
My finger tips remembering your body trace by trace
Laughing and dreaming of times we've yet to come
Erasing the sorrows of the past, or at least some

Quietly, I wrote you the words to our first song
A tale of hope and knowing where we truly belong
Do you remember love, it was truly just yesterday
When I turned and kissed you as if to pray

"Tell me your secrets; tell me no lies
Tell me you love as you look in my eyes
I'll tell you the truth in every note I play
There in each moment lived every day
From the moment you've touched me
You've been what I've need; my fantasy"

"A fantasy we make realer with each day
You show me you love me in all of your ways
I can't help but sit here and lovingly smile
As i watch your movements in your style
Lady love you are the making of a memory
And always the very best part of me" No words could ever be any more true Than those words from me to you I stare in wonder at the burning of your melody Knowing my beating heart plays out our harmony So happy birthday to you, my love To me you're like an angel from above God's private messenger offering me dreams And with these, the happiness of two human beings (c) September 16, 2018 Michael Romani All Rights Reserved
