Seasons of Love

Spring's first bloom, her gentle face,

In every bud, her love I trace,

Her laughter, summer's warm embrace,

Her touch, a soft and tender grace,

A garden of love, my heart's base.

Her voice, the autumn's gentle rustle,

Her stories, the winter fires' hustle,

In every season, love's soft bustle,

In life's harsh winds, her warm nestle,

Her love's the sun through clouds' tussle.

Her wisdom, trees tall in skies,

Her care, the morning sun's rise,

In her love, my fear belies,

Through life's seasons, our bond ties,

Her love, the sun in my skies.

Her comfort, the cool shade in glare,

Her patience, the answer to my prayer,

In her eyes, love laid bare,

Through seasons of life, rare and fair,

Her love, none other could compare.

Through seasons' change, her love stands firm,

In her hug, life feels less stern,

Her love, the brightest summer term,

In the garden of life, she's the germ,

Her love's the sun, that shines long-term.

The Gift of Years

Her hands, a map of tender years,

Stories etched in laughter, tears,

A voyage of love, hopes, fears,

In the tapestry of life, she steers,

Her love, a melody in my ears.

A face adorned with wisdom's lace,

Her life, a journey of grace,

With every challenge, she'd embrace,

Her strength, my heart's base,

Her love, time could never erase.

Her eyes, a deep pool of days,

Reflections of life in soft haze,

Her gaze, a comforting blaze,

Her love, a comforting maze,

Her life, a story of love's ways.

Her smile, my world's soft glow,

Her love, a river in constant flow,

Through life's high and low,

Her love, a comforting show,

Her embrace, a soft tender throw.

Her words, seeds of love sown,

In her love, my life has grown,

Through years, her love shown,

Her presence, a comforting tone,

Her love, the sweetest ever known.
