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.

Our Story

The story of our life together
a timeless tale of love's endeavor
to bring to light the boundless joy
true love creates between  girl and boy

Everyday, every page
a fresh start
to write with love
upon your heart

To read your soul
as it touches mine
with words so sacred
they have no rhyme

Sharing with our children
the favorite chapter
to watch them smile
and hear their laughter

Edits made
on our knees
erased by his mercy
as he hears our pleas

Ours is, a story for the ages
love and kindness throughout its pages
A never ending picture of
a forever and eternal love
