I Love You

I love your lips when they’re wet with wine
And red with a wild desire;
I love your eyes when the lovelight lies
Lit with a passionate fire.
I love your arms when the warm white flesh
Touches mine in a fond embrace;
I love your hair when the strands enmesh
Your kisses against my face.

Not for me the cold, calm kiss
Of a virgin’s bloodless love;
Not for me the saint’s white bliss,
Nor the heart of a spotless dove.
But give me the love that so freely gives
And laughs at the whole world’s blame,
With your body so young and warm in my arms,
It sets my poor heart aflame.
So kiss me sweet with your warm wet mouth,
Still fragrant with ruby wine,
And say with a fervor born of the South
That your body and soul are mine.
Clasp me close in your warm young arms,
While the pale stars shine above,
And we’ll live our whole young lives away
In the joys of a living love.”

(Ella Wheeler Wilcox, American writer, 1850–1919)


The Good-Morrow

The Good-Morrow

I wonder by my troth, what thou and I
Did, till we loved? Were we not weaned till then?
But sucked on country pleasures, childishly?
Or snorted we in the Seven Sleepers’ den?
‘Twas so; but this, all pleasures fancies be.
If ever any beauty I did see,
Which I desired, and got, ’twas but a dream of thee.
And now good-morrow to our waking souls,
Which watch not one another out of fear;
For love all love of other sights controls,
And makes one little room an everywhere.
Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone;
Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have shown;
Let us possess one world; each hath one, and is one.

My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears,
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest;
Where can we find two better hemispheres,
Without sharp north, without declining west?
Whatever dies, was not mixed equally;
If our two loves be one, or, thou and I
Love so alike, that none do slacken, none can die.

(John Donne, English poet, 1572–1631)


When You Are Old

When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

(William Butler Yeats, Irish poet, 1865–1939)

Tips on How to Send “Happy Birthday” Messages

Tips on How to Send “Happy Birthday” Messages

Some people are naturally gifted when it comes to writing birthday wishes – you read their message, and you just can’t help but smile at the thought and consideration they’ve put into writing a message that perfectly captures your relationship.

Others, however, may need a little help to get the pen flowing.

Below, we have put together our top three tips to ensure your message to your wife is a hit this year. If you put these tips to use, you’re guaranteed to be in her good books.

Make It Personal

A great tip for writing a birthday wish to any loved one is to add some personal touches in the message. Whether it’s for your wife, mom, dad, son or daughter… make sure to write something that will make your card stand out from the rest.

If you are writing a birthday card for your wife, try using the pet name you have for her. Maybe include a personal anecdote or inside joke.

The most important thing to remember is not to just copy a message directly without adding something personal. That way, your card will really mean something and will emphasize your close, unique relationship.

Express Your Love and Gratitude

Express Your Love and Gratitude

Take this opportunity to express the love and appreciation you have for your wife.

Tell her how much you love her by detailing exactly what it is about her that you love so much. Specific, heartfelt compliments are always more meaningful than generic “I love you”’s.

Sending a birthday wish to your wife is a great opportunity to thank her for everything she does in your shared life.

Whether that’s supporting you, providing care to your children, doing work around the house or simply making you smile – acknowledging someone’s efforts makes them feel seen and appreciated. A message that includes this kind of appreciation will make her feel great on her special day.



Another fun way to make your birthday message memorable is to write it in a handmade card. There are lots of fun ways you can use crafts to make your card.

Why not try sticking a photo of her or the two of you to the front of it? You can embellish it with different craft supplies to make it truly unique.

If crafts aren’t for you, another way to make sure your card is truly unique is by ordering a personalized card online. You can include your wife’s name and a photo of the two of you on whichever option speaks to you the most.
