A poem for my boyfriend Geoff`s birthday! !


Today you add one more year
One more candle upon the cake
Another year came and gone

But my Love please do look upon this number
As age slowing creeping
For Forty Four is just like..

A fine wine aging for the taste
A violin sweeter with the sound
A strong oak that withstands the storm

For the age that is achieved
Only makes you more valuable
Not only in my heart

But in my life
I Love you no matter what
Or how many years....

Today you turn 44
The age we can`t
Turn or spin around

The candles on the cake
Are there for you to
Blow out and make A wish

The tasting of the wine
While sitting on A blanket
Looking up at the stars.....

The mighty oak, strong and tall
Reminds me of you
And the strength in our Love

Geoff just A little poem to say
Happy Birthday and I LOVE You.....

Just A little thank you to P.G. for the
help she gave me on this poem......

Happy 44 Birthday Geoff
On June 11 2006....
