Love Poem for Valentine’s Day

E wrote this love poem and read it at our legal gay wedding back in October 2008. He recited it to me during the ceremony. It is a beautiful and loving poem and I am glad to share it with all:

"Sometimes I catch my own breath,
Gasping desperately for needed air
As I suddenly realize how much I love you.

"Sometimes I trip on a stone not there,
Stumbling as an awkward puppet
As I lose myself thinking about you.

"Sometimes I grin at inappropriate times,
Puzzling passersby at my apparent joy
As I remember how it is to be with you.

"Sometimes I wipe my eyes of tears not there,
Crying silently in my heart, mind, and soul
As I feel so deeply how you have touched me.

"Sometimes I stop all that I do and look to heaven,
Thanking God with fervent prayer
As I know how lucky I am to have found you.

"Sometimes I just hold my breath as long as I can,
Choking out all other outside world and life
As I hold you close to me in my dreams.

"Sometimes, all times, every time I simply sigh,
Relishing every moment we have spent, every word we have spoken
As I realize yet again how much I love you”

who says that gay marriages don't work ?. I love reading this sort of thing.
I hope you live happily ever after.
