Night and day, You are the one....
You don't need to hear my voice at the beginning and at the end of your day,
Whispering the words I love you Mrs. Darné,
Or receive a card, a naughty voice mail, or poem to express
my love for you in some creative way...
You don't need me to tell you that you are beautiful
Or statements like "I don't want to live without you"
You have no need to be reminded my heart is in your hands
That I cherish you, I adore you, and I love being your man
You don't need me to take you to fancy places to eat
Or on a tropical vacation as some special treat
You don't need to be kissed by my lips or held in my arms each night
Nor do you need to feel me inside you to experience intimate delight
You don't need to hear me make you promises of a lifetime
And so I will say what I need to say without taking up much more of your time.
I fell in love with you the moment we shared our first kiss
When I don't hear from you my day is amiss
Your eyes, your dimples, your scent and your laugh linger in my mind
All serve to help me get through my daily grind
I've never loved anyone or anything as much as I love you
So forgive me if I continue to give you all the things you don't need
This love, lust, and passion which has been locked up in me for years is glad to be free
And although you recently told me that "we don't love the same way"
I still recall that early on we did, and I believe we still do
It's just that sometimes "we are not in the same place on the same day"
There is real magic between us when we do connect
The best is yet to come; I'm willing to bet
You may not need anything from me
But my hope is you will always want me
For love is best when it is given freely
To those we desire and not to those who are needy
I love you Tricia very much today
And I will love you even more tomorrow
No matter when or how our journey ends it will be met by immeasurable sorrow
I was blessed beyond my wildest dreams the day we met
And not once have I had a moment of regret
Be it laughter or tears that await us over the years
Victory celebrations or confiding our fears
Stormy weather or sunshine
In good or bad times
One thing is and always will be true
The most important person in my life is "YOU"!
