True Love Poem

To My Loving Husband of 16 years....

Fires, Wine, Beach, And Time

© Sylvia Stults
Crackling fires and glasses of wine
a walk on the beach forgetting the time
this is all nice and things we should do
but these aren't the things that make me love you

Fighting for bed sheets and racing for the better car
aiming for my mouth with animal crackers from afar
tipping the canoe and watching lunch float away
these are the special things that make me want to stay

Slapping an insect from my arm onto yours
Holding everyone up taking pictures on tours
Forget about reservations there's a hostel in site
or maybe we'll backpack it and camp for the night

These are the special things that make me love you
Your educated, witty, funny and true
So next time you kiss me or take me by the hand
I want you to know just where I stand

I don't need fires or glasses of wine
I don't need beaches to forget about time
And even though we have done that and more
It's your love that makes me stay, it is you I adore
I love you with all of my heart...
