I felt something special
there was this petite looking girl
so simple with a nice smile
a warm feeling enveloped my inner being
A book in her hand
surrounded by a group of friends
I thought, what is so special about this girl?
how come I cannot stop glancing,
short of staring at her?
At that time, I consider myself as naive
confused with what I feel
But definitely sure that at that moment
a fine sweet day in the midst of that year
that this person is very special
The special feeling within me was nurtured
Into friendship and evolved
to become the most
special relationship that one can have
Almost six years after
The nuptial invites read
"This day, I will marry my friend,
the one I laugh with,
Committing my love
and everything that I can offer
as we became one.
And yes, I am so grateful
for the gift of nineteen hundred and eighty nine
It has given me the treasure of my life
the one I will grow old with
The love of my life.
Happy valentine's day!
