You are truly one of a kind
And I am so glad that you are mine
The day that I married you
Was a great day that is true
But now the years have ticked by
I find I love you more that's not a lie
My love continues to grow each day
Due to what you do and what you say.
As a husband, you are the best
I feel so loved and so blessed.
You are loving and thoughtful too
I love you, oh yes I do.
So my husband let me say
I love you more with each passing day
May our love always be strong
Together you and me belong.
In Deep Places Poet: Amelia Josephine Burr
I love thee, dear, and knowing mine own heart
With every beat I give God thanks for this;
I love thee only for the self thou art;
No wild embrace, no wisdom-shaking kiss,
No passionate pleading of a heart laid bare,
No urgent cry of love's extremity —
Strong traps to take the spirit unaware —
Not one of these I ever had of thee.
Neither of passion nor of pity wrought
Is this, the love to which at last I yield.
But shapen in the stillness of my thought
And by a birth of agony revealed.
Here is a thing to live while we do live
Which honors thee to take and me to give.
Love Song Poet: Mary Carolyn Davies
There is a strong wall about me to protect me:
It is built of the words you have said to me.
There are swords about me to keep me safe:
They are the kisses of your lips.
Before me goes a shield to guard me from harm:
It is the shadow of your arms between me and danger.
All the wishes of my mind know your name,
And the white desires of my heart
They are acquainted with you.
The cry of my body for completeness,
That is a cry to you.
My blood beats out your name to me, unceasing, pitiless —
Your name, your name.
