I didn't know I could, or if I ever would give my heart to
another again. I lost my zest for living, my very essence of being,
until I met you.
My heart had been hurt by another. I felt as
if I could never trust anyone again. Something told me I should open
myself up, if just in the smallest of ways to you.
I am glad I listened to that small inner voice. I never knew what true love was until I met you.
It took time and patience and a lot of love, but you never wavered. You have become my strength and my reason for loving again.
Today I give to you the Key To My Heart, in thought and with this gift as a reminder of my feelings for you.
Whatever the future holds for us for better or worse you now hold the Key To My Heart and my love that goes with it.

- Dear Valentine. By Arlene Brown
Will you be mine??
A Secret Admirer
- You Are So Special. By Arlene Brown
I saw this gift and I thought of you.
I have trouble sometimes adequately expressing my affection for you, it
doesn't mean that I don't care or that I don't want to be near you
because I do.
My hands get all sweaty, my heart skips a beat and my knees get weak. I stumble over words that for most come fluently.
Silly isn't it?
Perhaps, but I feel like a teenager again. All swept up in the moment and it feels great!
I really look forward to our times together and can't wait to see what the future holds for us.
- You Can Count On Me. By Arlene Brown
As time goes by I realize more and more just how very special you are.
do love you, and always will. I will always be there for you. Through
the highs and lows you can count on me. I will not let you down, ever.
Best friends sometimes turn into lovers and sometimes lovers become best friends, you are all that and more to me.
My very best friend, my lover, my confidant and my heart.
never knew this is what a true and honest relationship was like until
we brought our two lives together and joined our hearts together in
this thing called love.
I am a better person for having met
you, a better person for the love you have unselfishly shared, and a
better person for what you have taught me.
I love you and always will.
- As Time Goes By. By Arlene Brown
As time has gone by I simply cannot believe how much our love has grown.
How much we have grown as a couple, and how much we have grown independently.
That is the beauty of this relationship. You have allowed me to grow as a person.
Because of that I have been able to help our relationship grow and take on the
many challenges we have faced. Because there is strength in unity and strength in
our love for each other.
We have overcome every obstacle thrown in our way.
We have climbed the highest highs, and cried over the lowest lows.
All I know is that there is not another person in this world I would rather be with.
Thank you for being you, thank you for loving me with all of my faults.
I Love you and always will.
Happy Anniversary my love.
- To a Very Special Mom. By Arlene Brown
When I was small you let me explore my new little world and all it had to offer.
Although I felt free to be adventurous I knew you were keeping a close eye on me.
Making sure I didn't get into harms way. You taught me right from wrong. I always
felt protected and loved.
When I grew older you taught me how to be a good person, to look after myself and
others. And yes, sometimes we didn't agree but somehow I knew that was OK too. I
learned we could have differences yet still love one another.
On this Mother's Day I wanted to let you know that I love you very much. And that
you are such an important part of my life.
- Dear Mom, I Love You! By Arlene Brown
On this special day I wanted to let you know that I love and appreciate you so very
much. Not just for the day to day friendship we have but for the time you have given
me all throughout my life.
When I was young I do not think I fully appreciated what a sacrifice, on so many
different levels being a Mom is.
You have sacrificed and loved me for all of these years, sometimes without getting
the recognition you truly deserve.
On this day know that I love you more than words can say and you will always be a
part of my life wherever I may roam.
- Thank you for all that you have taught me. By Arlene Brown
I cannot begin to thank you for all of the wonderful things you have done for me over
the years. When I was small you wiped away my tears and celebrated my achievements.
You were always there, encouraging me to take my first steps, my first words and holding
my hand and comforting me through my first mistakes.
As I grew you were still with me. Through school and all of its highs and lows. Through
my teenage years you guided me through some difficult times. Sometimes I didn't want you
there, but you let me know that was OK too. I needed to find my own way. But I knew you
were never far behind. Looking out for me. Perhaps I didn't appreciate it then, I thought
I knew it all. But you knew that too! And let me learn life's lessons.
You have taught me to be a better person, to give and not always take.
Now that I have grown I want you to know that all those "firsts", when you were there
meant so much to me. I don't know how I would have been able to get where I am today without you.
Have a very happy Mother's Day.
I Love You
- The years have passed. By Arlene Brown
The years have passed, and so many things have changed in our lives.
But one thing remains constant, and that is my love for you.
Sure, we have had our highs and lows but if I had to do it all over again I
would have only changed one thing. I would have married you sooner.
Every moment we have shared together we cultivated and nurtured our relationship.
We have cherished special moments, and the future only holds a multitude of
unopened doors for us to explore. And the realization that while we live a union
of unconditional love every day, we are also creating a legacy of love for the
people close to us to remember long after we are gone.
I love you and always will.
- Can't wait to see you again. By Arlene Brown
In this thing called "life" with all its ups and downs I never thought I would start as I began...
In wonder of all around me, with each new day an adventure.
These days I lay at night and smile in wonder of you
I close my eyes and I try to recall each new step I took when I was
young. I feel at peace, for now, those earliest of steps are revealed
once again with each new step I take with you.
those summer days of long ago where playing, running and chasing
butterflies, laughing at the silliest of things encircled my life.
And now here I am with you. Chasing life's new wonders with you, my new best friend.
Isn't it strange that just when I thought my zest for new adventures was over, that it really has just begun.
I thought I had all that I was allowed, all that life was going to give me.
I am so delighted I have started where I began. Everything seems new, exciting and wonderful.
I can't wait to see you again.
