I wanted to send you a gift that rang true. A gift that would show how much I love you. As I battled the crowds and the kids at the store. Every gift I saw left me wanting something more. I looked at the market and at the ads in the mail. But as hard as I looked, I continued to fail. Finally it hit me – a gift from above. I decided to send you a bottle of love.

Once in a lifetime, you'll find someone who loves you for who you are, no matter what your faults may be. Once in a lifetime, you'll find someone who will tell you the truth about everything, even if they're afraid you won't like what you hear. Once in a lifetime, you'll find someone who knows you better than you know yourself, and can always tell when you need a lift. Once in a lifetime, you'll find someone who can make you smile, even when your world seems like it's crumbling around you. I know I'll never find a true love like you again, because it only happens once in a lifetime.

The song of a dove in the cool mountain air The feeling of knowing you will always be near A life lived in romance, filled with our love A love made in heaven, rains gifts from above The day that I met you is the day my life changed The day that I met you was the day my heart sang I love you with a passion that will never die out You alone have taught me what life is truly about Forever and always, my heart belongs to you For once in a lifetime does a love come so true.

How can I measure my love for you? Is it measured in the number of beats that my heart skips every time I look your way? Is it measured in the number of smiles you’ve brought to my lips every time I hear your voice? Perhaps it’s measured by the sparkle in your eyes or the music in your voice. Or perhaps, my love for you is so deep, that it can’t be measured at all. Though I may not be able to measure it, it is most definitely there. I love you with all of my heart and all of my soul, and I will love you for the rest of my life.

I look at you, and I thank God the day you came into my life. You are the anchor that keeps me grounded in a world gone awry. You are the sun shining through the clouds at the end of my storm. You are embodiment of everything good in my life. And because I don’t always get the chance to say it. I wanted to let you know in a special way. that I love you, now, always and forever.

Once in a lifetime, you’ll find someone who loves you for who you are, no matter what your faults may be. Once in a lifetime, you’ll find someone who will tell you the truth about everything, even if they’re afraid you won’t like what you hear. Once in a lifetime, you’ll find someone who knows you better than you know yourself, and can always tell when you need a lift. Once in a lifetime, you’ll find someone who can make you smile, even when your world seems like it’s crumbling around you. I know I’ll never find a true love like you again, because it only happens once in a lifetime.

I mixed the blue of ocean hues With azure from the sky; The color sings of hopes and dreams That deep within me lie. I placed within the peacock flask, My heart, all nestled deep – Safe from the winds of fortune – For you to hold and keep. Next, wrote this heartfelt message And tucked it down within In hopes the ocean’s sea breeze Would bring it back again. I took this graceful bottle And stood upon the shore, And cast it out upon the tide To open up a door. The door is to your heart-light So you will know inside How very much I love you – It cannot be denied. I humbly ask this favor: If your love is just as great, Please send your own heart back to me Forever I will wait.

You are my harbor, My port in the storm. Your heart is my safety; Your love keeps me warm. When tossed on the waves Or adrift, full of pain, I know in your love I will be home again. Your embrace is my haven. Forever I’ll know Your refuge will hold me Where ever I go. And know in your heart, That you have all my love. You’re my hero, my shelter, My gift from above.

No ocean lies between us, But still I see your light That shines just like a lighthouse Through a dark and stormy night. Though now I can’t be with you, Your light will bring me home. I see it from a distance No matter where I roam. Since I’m the one that wanders I have no light to share. But look upon this bottle And know that I am there. The bottle is my lighthouse, The words, my glimmer bright, To draw us close together Each day and every night. Just as your light’s my beacon, And you, my refuge – dear, This bottle holds my loving heart Please keep it always near.

On opening this bottle, You found a message, deep. But more than just a simple verse Find love for you to keep. For hidden down inside the words Is treasure greater than The gentle song of joyous larks Or pirate’s golden plan. The message holds my constant love; The meter holds my heart The rhymes that tie together Will never let us part. So anytime you read it Please know the gold that shines In treasures, buried, can’t compare With the love within these lines.

The monthly shift of moonlight On silver glowing seas Will shine until the Earth ends From ocean depths to leas. The fixed and rolling tides will flow Forever and a day From border west to border east, From cove to huddled bay. These beauties out in nature Will go on ever more, But our love will last longer Even than the ocean’s roar. Through good times and the bad times, Through tears and laughter – both, I’ll love you past the end of time. On that you have my oath. Happy Anniversary!

I never meant to hurt you or cause you any pain. If I could, I’d reach out And take it back again. I’d crush your grief and anguish And bottle it so tight, That never would it once again Be seen in bright daylight. And then I’d take that bottle And fling it in the sea. And let the waters take it Far away from you and me. The ebb and flow of ocean tides Might bring the bottle back. But ocean’s magic would have changed To white from basic black. The message in the bottle, Would sing of nothing past.

Although I cannot be there, You know right from the start, That every wish I wish for you – Each comes straight from my heart. I wish that all your dreams come true. Have happiness, not stress! I wish your life’s adventure, Is filled with grand success. I wish you peace, but not without Enthusiasm deep As any ocean on this world. I wish your health you keep. I make these wishes every day With prayers sent above, But on your special day of days I speak them loud, with love. Happy Birthday

If you need me, you can call me, If you can’t, I’ll be right here In this bottle, in this message, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

This precious shining bottle Traveled ‘cross the seas of time To find a friend much greater than This tiny little rhyme. It landed on your doorstep, It’s mission’s not completed, though.

I heard that you were rather low, That you’d been feeling ill. I glanced around to find a gift That sends a tiny thrill. This bottle stood up tall and waved And said, “How do you do? I’d like to take your message To your friend who’s feeling blue.” I stared at it a moment, Then I knew that it was right. For this bottle’s filled with love and joy And wishes oh so bright. It holds a wish that your good health Returns in just a blink. Another wish that soon you’re back And feeling in the pink.

Floating ’round the ocean deeps Among the fishes, bright, This bottle gathered up their joy, And added sunshine, bright. Then onward it did travel To reach you here today Because it knew my message clear. I wanted it to say: You are the joy in all our lives – Your magic fills us up. You share your spirit freely; It’s an overflowing cup. You light our lives with sunshine From heart, so strong and true. Delight and fondness follow close In everything you do. No matter if it’s open, The love inside spills out For it contains respect and love. You’re special. There’s no doubt!

Whenever you are feeling down, Please close your eyes and feel The hug within this bottle That you have just unsealed. The magic in this piece of glass Will never dissipate. If countless times you open it, It’s charm won’t deviate. So place it in the window Or near your favorite chair, And use this never-ending hug Whenever life’s not fair. Let the unseen magic Place you in my warm embrace. The tears that shine within your eyes, It will – with smile – replace. This message, fairly simple, says You know when times are rough, The miracle within this glass Will be there, sure enough. Know that I am always with you, in both good times and bad.
