Because I Love You

(Poem is by one of my early girlfriends, and was given to me on this date.)

I want to walk with you
hand in hand
across the years to come,
through all the hours
a single lifetime
could make…

I want to grow with you
and experience life
to its fullest measure…

And discover each day
as it passes,
in our togetherness.
I want to do for you
what your love
has done for me…

…to give as much
as I've had
of the joy of receiving,
to always look into
my heart and find
I am more in love with you
than ever before.
