i'll keep him

My wonderful husband showed up at my office yesterday with the biggest bouquet of flowers I've ever seen. Roses, lilies, gerber daisies, snapdragons, asters, baby's breath, eucalyptus leaves, and many others I can't name. It sits majestically atop my lateral file cabinet and infuses the air with a deep floral aroma. Mmmmm.

His card read:
When you look into the mirror
on your birthday,
I want you to see
the face I see
whenever I look at you.
I want you to see
eyes that sparkle
with love and intelligence
and maybe a few
mischievous thoughts.
I want you to see
a smile that's contagious,
that gets even better
with a few extra laugh lines
here and there.
I want you to see
someone so loved
that there will never be
enough time to tell you
how much.

I had a good birthday.
