perhaps love

Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don't know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don't know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it's cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

Happy Valentines Day to my pal, my friend, my split-apart, my Buddy - if I should live forever, and all my dreams come true, my memories of love will be of you.

Happy Anniversary to our friends Sherry and Tim who married on this day 11 years ago, with just a little help from their friends!

Susan, you're a closet romantic - I never knew! Happy Valentine's Day to you (and to your sweetheart Buddy).

That duet between John D. and Placido Domingo is one of our absolute favorites. Who would've thought those 2 would sound so fantastic together?
You truly are a romantic...but I don't think you hide it :)
Happy Valentine's Day to you and your hubby...a little late.
