To My Husband

When we were young and newly married,
I thought this the meaning that True Love carried:
Presents of perfume, candy and flowers,
Lacey Valentines and dream castle towers.

But I have learned as our love matures
That there's more to lasting love like ours:
Caring for babies and sharing the flu,
Remembering to say that I love you.
For we've good years behind us, And we're looking ahead.
Not just taking love from marriage, But giving it instead.

Dear, it's nice to know, After all this time,
That you're still my special Valentine.
