(please turn up your speaker volume)

Today I share with you a beautiful song performed by one of our country's finest singers, Gary Valenciano. This song is included in the official soundtrack of the movie "All my Life."

I have written about so many different things but I have not yet made one single post about the man who made me believe in love again... and this song says so much about it.

I remember so well the day you came into my life. You asked for my name, you had the most beautiful smile. October 15, 2006. The day "you" and "me" became "us" and "we." I found my soul mate, my best friend, my buddy. I met you, my sweet Poppa bear.

How did you know I needed someone like you in my life? How did you know, baby? Did you feel the void in my heart? Among the billions of women on earth, how did you find me?

You came at the right time in my life. We were both coming out of broken relationships. We shared our sadness and hurt. It helped to have someone who understood. It was heartwarming to be give and receive the love and care we both longed for. You went ahead and took on the responsibility of helping me raise my kids when their own father turned his back on them. Thank you for saving me and my children.

I'll never forget how you brought the sun to shine in my life and took all the worries and fears that I had. After my marriage with my first husband ended up in separation, I lost all belief in love and marriage. Whenever I see a young couple getting married, all I could think of is "He's going to find another woman and dump her like trash." All that changed when I met you. It was you baby, who made me believe in love again. In God's time, we will seal our love with the bond of marriage.

I guess what I'm really trying to say, its not everyday that someone comes my way. No words can express how much I love you. Love is best expressed in ways and deeds. Between the coffee and cigarettes, the occasional bottle of beer we share, new recipes and wonderful cheese, its the loving glances we exchange with each other. The soft smile, the caring gestures, lots of hugs and silly laughter are things that make our day complete. I am looking forward to a lifetime with you, sweetie. My pinky promise! We'll grow old and wrinkled together, count grandchildren, get our own "His" and "Hers" walking sticks, or wheelchairs, or diapers, or what-nots. We will live a full life together. Our children will look to us as models of how love and family should be. You will be my forever sunshine, my cuddly bear, my sweetie pie. I love you baby. You've got  this feisty dragon all mushy right now.
