Snips and snails and puppy dog tails

So there's this man I know.  I met him 18 years ago.  I liked him the minute i set my eyes on his face.  In fact, I felt these strong feelings of love for him.  Crazy huh, having just met him and all.
  I thought he was the most gorgeous thing i had ever seen.  He didn't have a lot of hair but had the most beautiful blue eyes.   When I first saw him I was pretty tired but when I heard his beautiful voice this surge of energy came over me and I knew I just had to have him around me.  
Over the next few years we spent a lot of time together and really got to know each other better.  Sometimes he would do things that wore me out but mostly he made me laugh.  He had this energy that just wouldn't quit.  I loved him dearly and I looked forward to the little breaks that we would have from each other, but I was always anxious to get back to him. 


As time went on I grew to love him even more.  I loved watching him try new things.  He had this desire to try it all.   My pride grew with every new sport he tried or every new  musical instrument he got his hands on.  He could do it all and he could do it well.  Not only did I love him but I thought he was pretty darn cool.  He could make me laugh like no other.  There were times this man would make me cry and I would worry about him on occassion as well.  I think it's just because I loved him so and wanted the best for him.  
Pretty soon this awesome guy will leave me for a bit.  It's okay.  I knew this day would come.  He's on to  bigger and better things.  I want this for him.  I have loved every minute of this past 18 years and I wouldn't change a thing.  I won't even mind if he finds some other girl that he want's to hang around with more then me. 
 ( something tells me that might have already happened ).  
                             Happy 18th Birthday Ryan!
