True Love Shines Through

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
