Was it chance we met
Or was serendipity the gift
That brought us together
Whatever the reason...
I can't ever
My life without you

    A lovely poem about how special your wife is ! The secret is, please tell her how much you love her every day ! Don t miss. Every week give her a treat, flowers, a special pin, go for a walk, a lover's kiss a silk scarf, a card and tell her how pretty she is.! Thanks again for that poem !
