Sometimes in life, you find a special person;
Someone who changes your life just by being part of it;
Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop;
Someone who makes you believe
that there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you
that there really is an unlocked door
just waiting for you to open it.

This is Forever Love. 2
Red Roses For A Special Lady

-- a very special love story --
Love's greatest gift is its ability to
make everything it touches sacred. 1

Red roses were her favourites.

Her name was also Rose.

And every year her husband sent them, tied with pretty bows.

The year he died, the roses were delivered to her door.
The card said, "
Be my Valentine", like all the years before.

Each year he sent her roses, and the note would always say,
"I love you even more this year, than last year on this day.
My love for you will always grow, with every passing year."

She knew this was the last time that the roses would appear.
She thought, he ordered roses in advance before this day.
Her loving husband did not know that he would pass away.

He always liked to do things early, way before the time.
Then, if he got too busy, everything would work out fine.

She trimmed the stems, and placed them in a very special
vase; then sat the vase beside the portrait of his smiling face.

She would sit for hours, in her husband's favourite chair,
while staring   at his picture, and the roses sitting there.

A year went by, and it was hard to live without her mate, with
loneliness  and solitude that had become her fate.

Then, the very hour, as on Valentines before,
the doorbell rang and  there were roses, sitting by her door.

She brought the roses in and then just looked at them in shock.
That is why the roses will be sent to you for years.

When you get these roses, think of all the happiness that
we had together, and how both of us were blessed.

I have always loved you and I know I always will. But, my
Love, you   must go on, you have some living still.

Please . . . try to find happiness,
while living out your days.

I know it is not easy, but I hope you find some ways.

The roses will come every year, and they will only stop
when your door's not answered,
when the florist stops to knock.

He will come five times that day, in case you have gone out.

But after his last visit, he will know without a doubt to
take the roses to the place, where I've instructed him,
and place the roses where we are together, once again."

    Love is a force more formidable than any other.
It is invisible - it cannot be seen or measured,
yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment,
and offer you more joy than any material possession could. 3

The real act of marriage takes place in the heart,
not in the ballroom or church or synagogue.
It's a choice you make -
not just on your wedding day,
but over and over again
- and that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife. 4
. . .   this vignette of
life represents my own
personal declaration and
belief -  and it  is also my
Valentine for my very
special lady.

Deep Peace of the
Shining Stars and
my Love to you,
my love. 5
