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.

Believe me when I say
I think your perfect in every way
your beauty it out shines the sun
your soul can touch everyone

Believe me when I tell you
that each day I love you more and new
I cannot dream a better life
I will not  find a more perfect wife

Believe me when I write a  rhymes
of love that last throughout all time
of kisses that heal and feelings that reel
and breath I give but you choose to steal

Believe me when I stop and stare
at the vision of you standing there
everyday  your angeled face
reminds me of God's good grace

Believe me honest in my try
to sweep up and answer why
I am so in love with you
believe these words...they are true.
