You’re My First, My Last, My Everything

I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little Bit More, Baby

You’re My First, My Last, My Everything Lyrics

The first, the last, my everything
And the answer to all my dreams
You’re my sun, my moon, my guiding star
My kind of wonderful, that’s what you are
I know there’s only, only one like you
There’s no way they could have made two
You’re all I’m living for
Your love I’ll keep for evermore
You’re the first, your the last, my everything

And with you I’ve found so many things
A love so new only you could bring
Can’t you see it’s you
You make me feel this way
You’re like a fresh morning dew on a brand new day
I see so many ways that I
Can love you till the day I die
You’re my reality, yet I’m lost in a-a-a a dream
You’re the first, the last, my everything

I know there’s only, only one like you
There’s no way they could have made two
Girl you’re my reality
But I’m lost in a-a-a a dream
You’re the first, you’re the last, my everything

I’m Gonna Love You Just A Little More Baby

It feels so good
You lying here next to me
Oh, what a groove
You have no idea, how it feels
My hands just won’t keep still
I love you, baby
Oh, I love you, I love you, I love you
I just wanna hold you
Runmy fingers through your hair
Ooh
Outta sight
Uh-huh, right there, you like it like that
Closer
Come here, closer, close
Oh baby
Oh baby
Give it up, ain’t no use
I can help myself if I’d wanted to
I’m hung up, no doubt
I’m so in love with you, for me there’s no wayout
‘Cause deeper and deeper
In love with you, I’m falling
Sweeter and sweeter
Your tender words of love keeps calling
Eager and eager, yeah
To feel your lips upon my face
Please her and please her
Any time or any place
I’m gonna love you, love you, love you just a little more, baby
I’m gonna need you, need you, need you every day
I’m gonna want you, want you, want you in every way, yeah
Make no mistake, for I’ll hold back knowin’
This time it looks like lover is here to stay
As long as I shall live
I’ll give you all I have and all I have to give
‘Cause please her and please her
Any time or any place
Eager and eager
To feel your sweet lips on my face
Deeper and deeper
In love with you I’m falling, yeah
Sweeter and sweeter
Your tender words of love keeps calling
I’m gonna love you, love you, love you just a little more, baby
I’m gonna need you, need you, need you every day
I’m gonna want you, want you, want you in every way

Let Him Pamper You!

I love to pamper my wife.  I like to do nice things for her, romantic events, flowers, gifts, 25-Red-roses-in-a-vase-300x300and such.  For our 25th anniversary, I surprised her with a romantic weekend get away.  25 roses where waiting for us in our hotel room, I wrote a memory book that I had published from a custom book company, and I pampered her as much as possible.  I loved every minute of it.

I could go on about other things, but I think you get the point that I like to do things for her.  Candle light, soft 06-pamper-woman-061211music, sparkling grape juice (We don’t drink) and whatever I can do to make her feel loved. I love to give her back rubs and full body rubs.  I love to use oil on her, I love the way it leaves her skin so soft for days, even weeks later.

However, there is a problem.  She is resistant to me doing these things.  She does not like me making a big deal over her.  I have made it clear to her that I don’t do these things so she will make love to me.  I told her many times, I would be happy if she would just fall asleep while I did it.

The truth is it really bugs me that she does not let me pamper her more.  Which, pamper 1  brings me to my point for you wives out there.  It is quite simple, when your husband wants to pamper you, LET HIM!  It will make him happy, he will enjoy it. Relax, let him take care of you, let him pamper you.  If he is asking to do it, then he wants to do it. Don’t feel guilty, feel cherished. The more you enjoy it, the more he will enjoy it. It is definitely a Win – Win situation!

Postscript: I just read a wonderful post today by Forgiven Wife, entitled: “Leap of Faith.”  Her post relates to the topic of this blog since she is dealing with wives who feel that they are not worthy of happiness in marriage.  I found this to be a great article and it may give you an insight about why some ladies don’t want to be to be pampered.
