A lot of our concepts of beauty, art and form come from the classic Greece.
Our sense of democracy was born in Greece.
Greek architecture still prevails our way of building homes and buildings with class.
Many of our greatest story's,myths and history come from that illustrious country.
And Greek women's features are still the standard of which we judge beauty.
Classic statues and legends.
I understand how a face could launch a thousand ships.
I know why men dreamed of Aphrodite's and Venus.
I watched as the sun playfully danced through your hair as you stepped out to view the sunrise.
I could see the rays shout in joy as they caressed your lovely features.
For this illuminating of your radiance is surely why the sun makes it's long journey to the earth.
When it finds such a treasure it coaches flowers to bloom in tribute.
Early morning birds sing to herald your entrance to the day.
Trees bend in the wind just to catch a peek.
A famous quoter's author surely had you in mind when his pen was put to paper, To love is to admire with the heart; to admire is to love with the mind.
I do both easily and with gratitude.
You make it impossible to do otherwise.
Your greatest gift is to allow those around you to be who they are.
I am nurtured and guided by the example you set.
And humbled by your support.
Once a joke was told of now being able to trade you for two eighteen year olds, It would be a fool's bargain.
For in that I would surely be selling a diamond for two pieces of coal.
Happy Birthday Love. I look forward to being there for many, many more
