37 Happiness

April 19, 1975


Elenka

I wanted to see the world

You led me there

I wanted to uncover mysteries

You helped me solve them

I wanted to fall in love

You stepped into my life

I wanted to seem important

You showed me why

I wanted to create a dream

You put a hand on my shoulder and took me there

I wanted to walk on a gothic beach at night

You took my hand

I wanted to try my art

You listened and didn’t smile

I wanted a beautiful home

You decorated with love

I wanted more

You were insatiable

I wanted to see myself

You gave us Justin

I wanted adventure

You took me to exotic climes

I wanted my parents proud

You made their day

I wanted to take chances

You brought me back to earth

I wanted my life-music loud

You survived

I enjoy fun people

You introduced me to Jersey

I wanted you

You wanted me

LOVE


Happy Anniversary!

  6. Birdman and Elenka, Add my good wishes to your anniversary celebration. How long?

    I cannot think of a better gift than one of love in the form of a poem. I'm sure that you two and your relationship will make many of your admirers a wee bit envious. May your years together be long, happy, and healthy.

  7. This is a superb tribute to what appears to be a superb life-mate! Congratulations to you both. You've been lucky in love and some people never know that kind of thing.

    I didn't know you were such a fine poet, BM.

    1. Nice job, Birdman. Sometimes I think that you articulate best when you put what you say into a poem. Congratulations to the both of you - may you have many, many more years together! xxoo

  10. Oh, my sweet Birdman.
    I wish I could write beautiful poetry like you do, but, alas, I can't.
    Thank you sooo much, and if I could write....I would have written the same poem (sans the loud music part).
    I love you so much.....
    Today I am miles away in Florida, but my thoughts are with you on this great day.
    We will celebrate when I get home.
    Have a lovely day, my sweet.
