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.

My Heart's store

Come inside and you will see
my heart's store complete inventory
Everything we need is here
and don't you worry it won't disappear

Do you need something solid on which to build
my heart is strong material and skilled
How about something to hold things together
my heart can bond through all kinds of weather

Are you looking for a safe place to land
when the day is tto long and you can no longer stand
fall on my heart, it will support any weight
You can rest through the night and sleep in late

Is your mood more for moving fast
this heart can keep up and probably outlast
Go all night, dance and sing
my heart is up for anything

Need a compass if you get lost
my heart can be your guide at no cost
Looking to loose your self in love
my heart is the answer your in search of

So come inside try it out
you'll leave satisfied I have no doubt.
