Recipe for Love

Amy Oxford

Take a little bit of me
And a little bit of you
Add an entire decade
And all that we've been through

2 cups of loyalty
generously sprinkled with trust
A pinch of forgiveness
And laughter is a must

Blend a smile, a kiss and
Holding each others hands
Add this all together
Between a woman and a man

Stir in two hearts
Sprinkled with adoration
Stir it all together
And you get a good foundation
For Love.

To Be One With Each Other

George Eliot
What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?

Love Is Like Magic

Author Unknown
Love is like magic, and it always will be,
For love still remiins life's sweet mystery.
Love works in ways that are marvelous and strange,
There's nothing in life that love cannot change!
Love can transform the most commonplace
Into beauty and grandeur and sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish, understanding and kind,
For it sees with its heart, and not with its mind.
Love is the answer that everyone seeks;
Love is the language that everyone speaks.
Love can't be bought, it is priceless and free.
Love, like pure magic, is life's sweet mystery.

Give Your Hearts

Kahlil Gibran
Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping.
For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts.
And stand together yet not too near together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

I've Married One of Shakespeare's Dreams

Ogden Nash
Geniuses of countless nations
Have told their love for generations
Till all their memorable phrases
Are common as goldenrod or daisies.
Their girls have glimmered like the moon,
Or shimmered like a summer moon,
Stood like a lily, fled like a fawn,
Now the sunset, now the dawn,
Here the princess in the tower
There the sweet forbidden flower.
Darling, when I look at you
Every aged phrase is new,
And there are moments when it seems
I've married one of Shakespeare's dreams.

La Vita Nuova (excerpt)

Dante Alighieri
In that book which is
My memory...
On the first page
That is the chapter when
I first met you
Appear the words...
Here begins a new life.

I Ching (Excerpt)

When two people are at one in their inmost hearts,
they shatter even the strength of iron or bronze.
And when two people understand
each other in their inmost hearts,
their words are sweet and strong,
like the fragrance of orchids.

To My Dear and Loving Husband

Anne Bradstreet
If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me ye women if you can.
I prize thy love more then whole Mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee, give recompence.
Thy love is such I can no way repay,
The heavens reward thee manifold I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persever,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

A Kiss To Build A Dream On

Author Unknown

Give me a kiss to build a dream on,
And my imagination will thrive upon that kiss.
Sweetheart, I ask no more than this
A kiss to build a dream on.

Give me a kiss before you leave me,
And my imagination will feed my hungry heart.
Leave me one thing before we part
A kiss to build a dream on.

When I'm alone with my fancies...I'll be with you
Weaving romances...making believe they're true.

Give me your lips for just a moment,
And my imagination will make that moment live.
Give me what you alone can give,
A kiss to build a dream on.

As Time Goes By

Herman Hupfeld

You must remember this
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is still just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.

And when two lovers woo,
They still say: "I love you."
On that you can rely.
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs - never out of date
Hearts full of passion - jealousy and hate
Woman needs man - and man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It's still the same old story,
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

A Love Poem For My Wife

Joey Tolbert
I see you as a beautiful women of Kindness and love,
With a big heart for others that your always thinking of.
I love how you smile it makes your eyes shine and twinkle,
Or your laugh when its funny if its not just a wrinkle.
I love your way of hugging and holding me close,
Or staring at my face and smiling, loving me most.
You mean more to me than anything in life,
I'm happy the Lord did make you my wife.

I've looked for your love in all the wrong place,
But I find it in your eyes when I look at your face.
I love to remember our days in a Mexican paradise,
I never took you for granted and you always looked nice.
My heart sings songs of happiness when I'm in your heart,
And cries out for your love when we are apart.

I just need you to know that I always am here,
I will never leave your heart nor create any fear.
You gave me your heart and I gave you mine,
I hope that you love me till the end of time.
I want to die in your arms in a cabin by the woods
If I had one wish, I wish that I could.
