Everyday Love: The Plan

About 2 weeks after my marriage to Jill, I left her the first of what I now call, "everyday love notes". It read simply, "Sleep on my queen and when you dream, dream me to be your king." 19 and half years, and several hundred notes later, I still find a new reason everyday to fall in love with her and I am still searching for the right words to express it.

So for the next year I am writing an "everyday love note" everyday. Honest expression of a man's love for his wife and how daily that love looks, lives and lasts.

All of these I will post here , and all of these I will write and leave for Jill.

Year in Review

I have learned a lot over the past year while trying to write each of these poems on a daily basis. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be but neither is love. There are good poems, great poems and poems that still need work...just like boening in love, there are good days, great days and days that I could have put some more work into. And even though every line is true...just like true love, sometimes it is stretch or hope that gets you there.

I hope there has been something the eveyone can relate to and draw from...I don't think my experience is too far removed when you really think about why you love the one you do. Thanks for reading and loving. Most of all, thanks to Jill, for being the women who inspired this project and daily gives me reasons to love her. I love you.

I want to love you dirty

Clean love is only dream love
which is fine through the night
but cannot stand the site of
real life under real light

Love is down right dirty at times
not wrapped up tight in rhythm and rhyme
it takes hard work, sweat and tears
breaking through and facing fears

It's might be at the bottom of a sink
filled with dirty dishes
and only after they are done we think
now! that is what dirty love is

Love is coming to the rescue, when I've had a few
it is being there with a spare and a smile
Love is loosing but staying together
mile after mile after mile

I want to love you dirty today
do what I can to do what you say
After the day is over, I can love you clean
In clouds and castles away in my dream
