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.

A Rock Ballad

Baby if I said you could
I was hoping that you would
Fall asleep in my waiting arms tonight

I would stand and I would fight
I would hold you desperate tight
To keep you next to me til morning light

When your next to me I feel invincible
Your love makes my heart unbreakable
If I were capable
I'd tell the world about my love for you
But for now just stay Close to me

Girl with all that we've been through
You've carried me, I carried you
Tonight lets just sit back and rest a while

I'll remind you how to smile
With memories of our every mile
Having you next to me just suits my style


There is nothing we can't do
Nothing we won't make it through
You for me and always me for you
