I Will Love You

Poem by Shelly Price

For all the days of my life...
I will love you.

I will love the beauty of what was meant to be,
deep into the quiet hours of the night when all is still,
I will remember how loving you made me feel...
I will love you.

I will love the memory of each touch,
the fire of each kiss,
the consuming desire that filled us both
each and every moment we were apart...
I will love you.

I will linger in and forever cherish
thoughts of what it meant to be loved by you...
I will love you.

I will love the person I am today,
for I know that I am that person because
of the time you spent being patient,
being forgiving,
being understanding...
I will love you.

I will love the softness of your lips...
the scent of your flesh...
the weight of your body pressed against mine...
as the essence of you filled my being
with so much certaintity...
I will love you.

I will love the rain in the springtime...
the clouds in the fall...
the heat of the summer sunshine...
and the chill from winter...
Each season will come and then go...
over and over and over again...
I will love you.

No matter what words I say...
no matter how far away...
during my darkest hour,
or the height of my glory...
I will love you.

I will love you whole and complete just as you are.
I will accept each new wrinkle or blemish...
each flaw in your character.
Each wrong we never made right
will be a reminder of what we had together...
I will love you then and always.
