My Valentines

Since the very first time I saw her 24 years ago, I knew that Shari was my lifelong Valentine! After only a couple years of my stalking her, I convinced her that we were meant to be.
Our first date was a Bruce Springsteen concert. Fitting. She started dating the kid described in 'Growing Up'; we struggled to beat odds stacked against us as depicted in 'Prove It All Night'; and our life together have has been a retelling of 'Born To Run' - "One day, girl, I don't know when, we're gonna get to that place we really wanted to go, and we'll walk in the sun... but 'til then tramps like us..."
So, I'm living my fairy tale with the girl of my dreams. One day these other Valentines of ours (as you've met in earlier posts) will all be out on their own. That's when I look forward to Shari and I writing some new choruses together... more like Barry White than Bruce Springsteen.
Shari, 'I love you with all the madness in my soul'. Will you be my Valentine?
