Yesterday 7th February, Lisa and I celebrated 31 years of married life.
I don’t want to sound smug or treat this frivolously when I say, this is unsurprising as we both went in for the long haul…no matter what. I wrote this poem for her in 2000 – it hangs on our wall.
We married on the 3rd day of Chinese New Year, 1981. Some of you already read our story > Cognac
More love poems to come as a run-up to Valentine’s Day on 14th February 2012
Romance is always important in our lives.
Very true – world can do with more of love and romance.
Beautiful! It made me anticipate whose rib bone I’ve got! haha, just kidding. Your wife, dear sir, is lucky to have a sweet and romantic husband as you. I’m sure you’re lucky to have her too since she’s the reason for those beautiful words you create 😀
Kid away…we need more smiles, not frowns in this world.
Yes, I am lucky to have her. Praise and thank Our God.
What a wonderful tribute to your wife…. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you Leslie, and you are very welcome.
I am a lucky fellow 🙂
Could any words say it better? Beautiful and so romantic.
Thank you Frank.
Never did I see myself as a romantic…but I suppose when one is blessed with the right person, anyone can become a romantic – even Eric.
I would love to read more of your journey – snippets here and there perhaps 🙂
Luv and peace, Eric

Eric, your Lisa is a most blessed woman indeed to have you! Love the rib bone-as-candle concept. The light of your life expressed in such a uniquely Ericky way!
“Ericky” way – your comments quite often put a smile in my heart.
Thank you my dear. Luv and hugz, Eric
