No Words - there are no words to express how I feel

 

Full Name: Brenda Dulin

Who do you want the poem written for: My husband, Kevin

Why do you want the poem written: In celebration of our 20th wedding anniversary 

Key messages: My love and affection for Kevin. Our past, present, and future. My thankfulness for his gentleness and patience.  

Memorable Moments: The birth of our 2 children: Christopher and Megan. Kevin’s memorable moments of me: When he saw me for the first time after basic training with the military and how relieved he felt. He was nervous on how I would respond to him having very little hair. Of course, I did not care that he had little hair … just very happy to see him. 

Other Comments: I have always told Kevin that there are no words to express how I feel about him. While trying to find something unique to give Kevin for our 20th wedding anniversary (January 21, 2004) on the internet, I came across your site and thought WOW! Maybe I have found a way to express how I feel about him. It is hard for me to answer the above questions, so I will just give you a quick flash of our history. I met Kevin when he moved into the neighborhood. I was probably 14 or 15, and he was at least 16 since he was already driving. We knew each other but never noticed one another until he asked me to go to Disney World with him the day before Christmas in 1981. He worked for Disney and had free tickets. I could not go with him because I had family commitments. So, he asked another girl to go but she could not either. I told him I could go after the holiday. He set a date (I believe it was  Dec 27th) and since he had asked the other girl as well, he brought his younger brother along to be her date. He took my hand for the first time just outside Cinderella’s Castle and near the carrousel. Well, that was the start of our relationship. I turned 17 a few weeks later and he asked me to marry him a few months later. He lost his father the following December and we were married Jan 21, 1984. He joined the Air Force in May of 1984. We had our son Christopher on March 24, 1987 and our daughter Megan March 17, 1991. Kevin is the love of my life and my best friend. I always look forward to seeing him and love being near him. I love the sound of his voice on the telephone and his eyes when he looks at me, and his half smile. Kevin has a humble and gentle spirit and is so patient. He is a wonderful father and provider. I could not ask for a better father for my children. His first song to me was “Open Arms”, by Journey and our favorite movie is “The Story of Us” with Michelle Pfeiffer and Bruce Willis. He cries at the end of the moving every time we watch it. We have had our share of ups and downs but we have always over come them through our love and commitment to one another. Allen, I am trusting that you will be able to put into words for me how I feel about my husband. I know the poem will not be finished before our anniversary but I feel the outcome will be worth the wait.  

Style: Everything happy, with romance and humor while expressing my love to him.

No Words

 

Hello, my wonderful Kevin,

these words are just for you,

because I’m proud of who you are

and I’m very proud of what you do.

 

I just wanted to say I love you

and I’m looking forward to our future times,

I’m proud of the past, I’m enjoying the present,

in truth, I have so many reasons for these rhymes.

 

I’ve always said there are no words,

there are no words to express just how I feel,

but just because the language hasn’t yet been invented ,

it doesn’t make those feelings any less real.

 

So, I’m going to give it my very best shot

and give you my best, from the very heart,

because really I just want to say I love you,

now, where on earth shall I start?

 

You see, not only do I love you madly,

I have a great deal of affection for you as well,

you’re so gentle and have so much patience,

I love you, (I hope by now you can surely tell).

 

Christopher and Megan are our proudest moments

and as a father, you are truly great

and I’m so glad that we’re together,

officially, I’d like to thank those winds of fate.

 

I remember when you’d finished basic training,

you were nervous because you had so little hair,

but I was just so very happy to see you,

all I could see was my man standing there.

 

You first asked me out in 1981,

it was Disney World on Christmas Eve,

I couldn’t make it because of other commitments,

but ever since then I’ve had my own dream to believe.

 

You first took my hand just outside Cinderella’s Castle

and magically, I felt then I was going to the ball

and before long you’d asked to marry me

and then I knew it, I simply had it all.

 

We were married a few short years later

and I’m sure your Dad was there as well

and I know he’d be proud of you today,

we’ve come a long way from that carousel.

 

Not only are you the love of my life,

I’m happy to say that you’re my best friend,

I always look forward to seeing you

and my joy of being near you knows no end.

 

I love the sound of your voice on the telephone

and when you look at me, I see the smile in your eyes

and you are such a humble and gentle spirit,

although really this should come as no surprise.

 

Because you have always given me “Open Arms”

and the “Story of Us”, always makes you cry

and I know we’ve had our share of ups and downs,

but together, we get through it (or at least we try).

 

And “try” is what I have feebly done,

I’ve tried but I was right, no words exist,

just know that you’re Cinderella’s dream come true

and there’s not a single moment I would’ve missed.

 

And I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary,

I guess that’s really what these words are for,

here’s to you Kevin, you’re wonderful

and here’s to us sharing many, many more.

 

So, when all is said and done,

there are simply no words left to be said,

so I’m just going to have to show you my love

and I’ll give you one big hug instead.

Brenda kindly replied after the first draft....

Hi Allen,

 WOW! You've done it! Just a few tweaks and we are there ...

 It is absolutely perfect. I cried while reading it, especially when you mentioned his dad. He always wonders if his dad would be proud of him.

 Let me know if you have any questions and thank you so much for this beautiful poem. I love it!

 Brenda :)

and later.....

Hi Allen,

 My husband received his poem today and absolutely loved it. The card is beautiful. He hated to untie it. Again, thank you so much.

Brenda :)
