As long as you’re with me.

To my wife

If I could live in any place, which place would it be?
Paris, France or Ireland or Southern Italy?
Those would be nice, once or twice, but…
I’d choose Michigan, right where we’ve been, as long as you’re with me.

If I could live in any house, which house would it be?
A mansion in the mountains or a lighthouse by the sea?
Those would be nice, once or twice, but…
Our old house, is where I’d espouse, as long as you’re with me.

If I could drive in any car, which car would it be?
A Beamer on the Autobahn or a car in the Grand Prix?
Those would be nice, once or twice, but…
I’d pick my old truck, with any luck, as long as you’re with me.

If I could float in any boat, which boat would it be?
A paddlewheel on a river or a schooner on the sea?
Those would be nice, once or twice, but…
An old canoe, would certainly do, as long as you’re with me.

If I could rest in any chair, which chair would it be?
A throne inside a castle or a seat at the symphony?
Those would be nice, once or twice, but…
Nothing compares, to rocking chairs, as long as you’re with me.

If I could eat any meal, which meal would it be?
Boiled lobster on the beach or hors-d’oeuvres with wine and brie?
Those would be nice, once or twice, but…
I’d eat a PB&J, on a rainy day, as long as you’re with me.

If I could choose any drink, which drink would it be?
A Margarita by a sunny pool or a fruity Daiquiri?
Those would be nice, once or twice, but…
I’d just fill up, my coffee cup, as long as you’re with me.

If I could live to any age, which age would it be?
All the way to Ninety or perhaps One Hundred and Three?
Those would be nice, once or twice, but…
Age can’t be guessed, though I’ll be blessed, as long as you’re with me.

  1. So romantic. Your wife is one lucky lady, Cowboy.

  2. bigsheepcommunications

    Your sentimental side is showing again : ) Very sweet.

  3. You are a keeper, just saying 🙂

    Wow…I feel like the luckiest person on the planet! I’ll take this version of “I love you” anytime 🙂 Looking back at the last twenty years and forward to the many more to come, I can gladly say “ditto!”

    You are My Sunshine! …and I agree, you are definitely a keeper 😉

  5. Your sentiments will get you far, you should let your wife read this 🙂

  6. That was really cool buddy…hope you showed it to her.

  7. Yes, of course she read it… the Kim above, that would be the wife. She’s pretty cool!

  8. I stand corrected on how many “like post” I’ve seen: this one has 11!

    I had a 101 year old aunt living in a hospital, with all her facaulties, who watched her 85 year old husband die there.
    I said, “I’m sorry Peter died.” … she said, “He said he was dying for years. He finally was truthful about it.” She died shortly after.

    note: I guess she was waiting around.

  9. Aw! What a beautiful tribute to your wife. Bravo!
