My Guy

(Written for Huhoney when I was 17(?) I think…MY GUY was in the Marine Corp. serving over sea’s during the Viet Nam war.  This is one of many love poems….

Valentines is so very near

A day that only comes once a year

And on this day you tell someone you love

That he is your guy and outshines stars above

So this is why I am sending this card to you

Just letting you know, I will always be true

And to wish upon this very day

That all love and happiness may come your way

But before I end, I  would like you to see

How much you’ve grown to mean to me

When the sun fades away, and bright stars fill the night

I wish that someday you’ll be holding me tight

but I find when I wish on my special star

That you aren’t really close

But only very far

Yet because of our love and my faith in you dear

I tingle with warmth and feel you are near

So if you ever get lonely, just open this card

And remember these thoughts came straight from my heart!

********************************************

A silly little poem, you can tell was written by a smitten 17 year old girl.  I think I will keep this month going with the theme of “LOVE”.  Maybe share some of my love poems.  They get a little mushy!!!!! so if you are not into “LOVE” you had better head on over to a cooking post or something LOLOLOL.

SO with that said, Huhoney if you are reading this, I thought I would add 14 reasons why you are so special to me…with Valentines Day being on the 14th and all, even though there are more than 14….

Well - I'm really thinking if Huhoney isn't crying by now, I'll do it for him! A sweet and enduring love note to your husband, Linda. Like you, my husband and I were sweethearts while still in high school. After seven years of "going steady" and 43 years of marriage, I think I'd better tell him tonight what a special Valentine he is to me! Thanks for your timely reminder! I've been thinking of you - hope all is well. PS Will you send me the link to the woman you mentioned on my blog?

How appreciative Huhoney must be to have such an adoring wife! I think that must be a common thread for most of us women in the village, Linda. Like Barb, my husband and I were high school sweethearts too.
Looking forward to your poems.

I think I'm in love with Huhoney too! LOL!
He sounds like a great man and you are so blessed to have each other.
Bring on the mush...I'm ready for some love themed blogs!

Linda, this is so sweet. It's wonderful to read the 'new love' poem, and even more wonderful to read the love that has grown. Beautiful!

Ray and I have been together since we were 17 and 18 too!

I had to come over here because I saw a picture of a newborn that Marcy commented on in Facebook! (I think the comment was for you) Do you have a new granddaughter? If so ~ Congratulations!

Love to you,
Eileen
