More than a catbird hates a cat,
Or a criminal hates a clue,
Or the Iranians hate the United States,
That's how much I love you.
I love you more than a duck can swim,
And more than a grapefruit squirts,
I love you more than a gin rummy is a bore,
And more than a toothache hurts.
As a shipwrecked sailor hates the sea,
Or a juggler hates a shove,
As a hostess detests unexpected guests,
That's how much you I love.
I love you more than a wasp can sting,
And more than the subway jerks,
I love you as much as a beggar needs a crutch,
And more than a hangnail irks.
I swear to you by the stars above,
And below, if such there be,
As the High Court loathes perjurious oathes,
That's how you're loved by me.
My thoughts exactly though beautifully put into words by Ogden Nash.
Happy Birthday to my hubby, may you have a wonderful year ahead. Hope all that you have worked hard and wished for will be yours this year. Looking forward to more birthdays with you and the children.
Yours always, E.
