This year for Valentine's day, I decided to surprise Nicole and use the blog as a way to show her how much I love her. This way anybody in the world can look at it and know that I love Nicole.
So I chose the best song that I can think of to describe her. I hope that as she reads the poem I wrote for her, and listens to the song that should be playing right now, she will know that she truly means the world to me. Here is the poem. (Reminder I'm at about a third grade poem level, I'm working on it.)
Valentine's day has come once again,
What better way to celebrate than to reflect on back then.
Back then I was young and loved mostly sports,
But you were so patient while I played on the court.
I would try and be cool and make the tough shots,
In hopes of you watching and thinking I like him lots.
Back then I returned from a mission and knew,
That someday I'd like to go on a date with you.
But I was awkward and shy, and most likely goofy,
Yet you dealt with me well and we saw a good movie.
Back then we went on a few more little dates,
Yet somehow I blew it and we both had to wait.
I went to school for a summer in Germany,
Then you prepared for your mission west to Cali.
Back then a couple years had already gone by,
From our first date to the first time we went to Manti.
That little trip changed my life and everything in it,
We spent the whole day together but only felt like a minute.
Back then we started to fall madly in love,
And I know that I felt guiding hands from above.
Alas, I waited to long for the love and the laughter,
So we planned on you leaving and continuing after.
Back then I remember missing you so much,
But I knew that it was right even without your touch.
So I waited and waited and longed for the day,
That we could snuggle in the front yard and just lay.
Back then I was willing to wait months for your return,
But tragedy struck and my emotions took a turn.
My dearest grandma was taken so she wouldn't have to suffer,
And not having your comfort made life even tougher.
Back then you came home after much prayer and thought,
To make my life complete, and to tie the knot.
So we wed before Christmas on the 22nd of December,
And since then each day has been even better.
Right now my love for you is greater than ever,
Yet somehow I think tomorrow will be better.
We now have the absolute most beautiful baby,
And I'm the luckiest man to have you as my lady.
So to you I say thank you, I think you're first class,
I love you and want you to say you'll always be my Schatz.
I love you Nicole. Happy Valentine's Day.
