A Poem for My Valentine

Hello, everyone!  In the past, I have used the week of Valentine’s to share some original poetry.  I have a new piece I would like to share with you, that I wrote for my husband.   Steve and I have been married for just over 29 years, so naturally we’ve been through a lot in our relationship, and it’s hard to pin down my feelings for him in just a few words, but I hope you enjoy my attempt.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Amy

To My Valentine

by Amy Caudill

We’ve been together for so long now

That I can hardly tell where you stop and I begin.

Your every word has power over me-

When you tease, or criticize, or praise

I am affected by you as no one else can.

When you show you care; you remember; you think of me;

I feel your love for me

It’s more profound than a thousand proclamations

Written in the sky.

The little things you do and say

Mean more than grand gestures once made

By others who remain only in fogged memory.

Sometimes we are so close, and sometimes we seem so far apart

Even in the same room,

But we always are.

There is no me without you-and I no longer remember who I was

Before you.

There is only we, in all our plans

All our hopes

All our futures.

I am yours; and you are mine.
