Happy Birthday Princess!
Sometimes we irritate each other.
Once in a while, like today,
it is not joyous.
Time passes swiftly,
love has made me selfish.
I am forgetful of you,
can’t say I love you.
Every time I put my arms around you?
Too many things.
I am lucky to share my life with
the incomparable Josephine,
continually a burning, glowing flame,
the greatest woman I ever met.
You still fascinate and inspire me though,
You just don’t realise:
no written words can adequately express
how fascinatingly beautiful I am.
Happiness is within me,
try to be as strong as me.
I hope you’ve had a special day,
Love Alex xx
