You'd love me forever you said
You'd love me forever .
For ever together you said
For ever together .
For better or worse you said
For better or worse .
You told her the same she said
You told her the same .
Now your alone we said
Now your alone .
The tree you planted has died
Bent and old
Out in the cold
no one cried .

I first seen his photo and he seen mine
My mothers quote " well that boys quite fine"
He got off the bus shy but however he hugged me like id known him forever. Weeks went by and I was falling in love, with a boy that I once never knew of. His world far away took a place in my heart, my world where he stays will always be where it start. Months went by and the word got around, but him and I weren't listening to the sound, words can't describe how we felt and in what way, but we are in love what more can I say. He has to return to his world in may, my heart shatters at the thought of that day, but this is all he has to say, the world is small and I'm always near forever and always, my love I'm here.

or all the days that have gone past and turned to calendars old
one things has made them joyous, spared them from the cold
your love is warm and sweet and safe, it keeps me grounded neatly
you circle me, allowing space i guess you just complete me
your roots entwined, deep with mine our journey never ending
When blossoms gone, your care lives on, tenacious, never bending
a smile a tear, another year, our babies giggle echoes
so hold me tight, Valentines night and baby please don't let go

Thanks for preventing me handing in my resignation
Saving reward points from the petrol Station
Buying me aerosols for my perspiration
Advising that I didnt need a Rooney hair restoration
Giving smiles of DIY appreciation .
Encouraging our boys vivid imagination
Great Banoffe Pie with boiled tins of carnation
Through all of my life you remain my inspiration :)

We were strangers,
And we knew nothing of each others lives,
Do you remember that time?
When our hands were empty
of each other,
And our lives were filled with things,
to pass time along,
Time that passed slowly and held no
we could have
Passed by on a crowded street,
In the eyes of a stranger,
Stood in the same line for coffee,
Apologised for nudging one another,
hassled smile with no meaning,
Gone seperate ways,unaware our hearts,
were calling out.
I could have
spoken to you in hushed tones,
down the receiver of a telephone,
Hearing the sweet voice,
The voice i have come to love,
As you utter the words
"i think you have the wrong number"
And i hung up, wondering accidental dialling.
Or destiny calling.
I used to watch
Couples in love,wide eyes,
The flush of love upon their cheeks,
And wish it was me.
Maybe we sat watching the same people,
lost in our dream worlds,
The same desires, wants, needs.
Seperated because we were strangers,
Yet bound inexplicably.
I loved you,
before i even knew you, dreamt,
of the day we would be one,
And now, were not strangers,
But two seperate halves,
of the same person, bound by true love.
And i cannot imagine me without........you,
As i did so long ago.
When we were strangers.
I hear your single that’s fine by me I hope
this card brings you lots of glee I’ll pursue you, if it
is your wish because you are a are a tasty dish
It would be nice to meet and enjoy
with mature company not a boy your company
is much desired so I hope my boldness
The words are said the deed is done it’s time for
you to consider fun until myself,
I do reveal I hope you’ll wait with
lots of zeal.
Please don’t be shocked or feel a gasp when I do
reveal myself at last our friendship now will
stand ever fast I’ve found my gorgeous soul mate

We had a dream
To find the one who would give us peace
How far would we climb
When would we cease
We relaxed and ate up
You showed me your cooking
Watched soccer world cup
It was finger licking
You asked for doughnuts
I brought you three
That was the moment
You fell in love with me
Our eyes met
It was love
We were so shy
Kept it hush
Our forever conversations that never get old
Talking with you for hours
Never want to leave you
Never put you on hold
Being away from you
Really kills me
This long distance relation thing
Doesn't fill me
Love being with you
Having the time of my life
Come check me out
This summer sometime
There is a future
For you I will care
Cherish our moments
Because times are coming
When we will be a pair

Ten things I love about Andrea
I love the way she makes my porridge, a morning treat to eat.
She’s so sexy in her dog walking gear, not an easy feat.
I love it when she tells me that I'm her ’wonderful man’
And I love it when she uses every dish, pot and pan.
I love the way she cuddles up in bed. I love the way she gently strokes my head.
I love the way she strides along the street,
And the way she shouts at Gypsies really is a treat.
Her “Buz” and “couldn't” are always sure to raise a little smile.
Andrea is my gorgeous girl, a fab rock chick with style.

So much that I want to do, so much I have to say
I sweep right through your ordered life, causing disarray
Fizzy like a champagne, with cork all poised to pop
I too am full of bubbles, once started hard to stop
I take you from a comfy chair, where you say that you`re just fine
Breathe new life and pull you in, from your staid world to mine
Then you see a life through my eyes, for we share a different view
I want to take you to yellow, not misty moody blue
Forgive me if I am extreme, always one step ahead
I`ll never ever bore you dear, but may wear you out instead!

I HAVE A LIL GRANDSON SO BEAUTIFUL AND SMALL
WHO ONE DAY SOON WILL GROW HANDSOME AND TALL
IL CHERISH THE MOMENT I GAVE MY FIRST KISS
THE SENSE OF FEELING THE ETERNAL BLISS
HOURS OF PAIN AND NO SIGN OF SIGHT
I LEARNED VERY QUICKLY WE WAS THERE FOR THE NIGHT
NEVER AGAIN WILL BE THE WATCHFUL WAITER
SO HAVE YA BABIES AND RING ME LATER
WERE NOW A YEAR ON AND SO CUTE I SEE
SO WITH THIS GIFT I SEND YOU THIS TREE
IT WILL FLOWER AND GROW AND SLOWLY RE-ROOT
UNTIL ONE DAY IT WILL GIVE YOU YOUR FRUIT
YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY VALENTINE AND MY NO1 FAN
SO REMEMBER THIS WHEN YOU FILL YOUR WATERING CAN
I HAVE A LIL GRANDSON SO BEAUTIFUL AND SMALL
WHO I WILL LOVE FOREVER TILL THE DAY I FALL
