User Topic: A Poem from my fWH

For my anniversary, my fWH wrote me a poem. He has always bought me those stupid cards that are meant to be funny and I always wanted what was in his heart.

I wanted to share it because it's such a departure from what he has ever done for me:

I love your smile, your laugh
The twinkle in your eye
Your quirkiness

I love your strength, your resolve
The ability to make so much happen
Your capacity

I love your caring, your compassion
Champion of the underdog
Your soul

I love your beauty, your body
The way you fill up a room
Your style

I love your instincts as a mother
At times tender, at times tough
Your nurture

I love you as a teacher
Always helping others to learn and grow
Your wisdom

I love you as a partner
In my corner, pushing me to be better
Your friendship

I love you as a wife and lover
Covering me with care, tenderness and kisses
Your love

Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.
