True Love Shines Through
March 25, 2011
Stephanie Jean Aanestad
Your eyes shine with kindness from your ever loving heart
Your lips speak the passion of the desire for your art
Your hands bear the seasons of the labor of your love
Your mind holds the wisdom that is blessed from above
The gardens that you sew are treasures to unfold
Lending magic for the young and beauty for the old
The paths you lay fill our senses through the air
And our sight is caught by the figures dancing there
Only a woman full of love for those who come her way
Could facet and arrange such a magnificent display
Your talent is on display for your love for the garden of your life
And for this I am truly blessed to have you for my wife
