Posts Tagged ‘Valentine’

Reflecting on life, as I often do, I thought of my daughter who I met for the first time last year. She is 23 and I did not know her until last year. I was disappointed that I only just met her. There was so much of her life I missed. I may be her father, but I never got the chance to be her dad. I missed a grand opportunity.

A child’s first hero should always be the dad. The guy who can lift anything, reach anything, open anything, kill any bug, and knows a lot of stuff. As they grow up they will come to realize dad cannot do everything and does not know as much as first thought.

My Valentine
What do I see of Thee
When you look at me? 

I do not see the years that have creased your face
I do not see the silver that has become your crown
I do not see the concern for the weight of this world
I do not see the effects of life’s daily stresses 

I see you

I see the little girl spinning in a one person race
I see the caring so deep within your eyes of brown
I see the majesty and grace waiting to be unfurled
I see your heart in the hand that blesses 

Yo te veo

Tu eres que bonita y cómo una reina gloriosa
Tu tienes un corazón cómo una joya preciosa
Tu voz es cómo el canto de un pájaro dulce
Tu vida es cómo la musica de los instrumentos mas finos 

My Valentine
What do I see of Thee
When you look at me? 

I see my life fully filled in your friendship
I see the greatness in the Child of God
I see the little girl who doesn’t see
I see the woman who needed me 

My Valentine
What do I see of Thee
When you look at me? 

I see you

My valentine, my heart, my love, my life on earth, my wife
