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.

Fresh Brewed Love

I know that your feeling tired
and that winters got you down
The wire which you balance on
seems further from the ground

It days like these that never end
the work keeps piling higher
You sleep only to start again
your daily balance on the wire

So when you feel you can't go on
I hope you call me up
I'm waiting with fresh brewed love
to refill your empty cup.

A shot of love is what you need
to make it through these days
I make my own just for you
and I know a secret way

A little hope and a touch of touch
with some fun and laughing mixed in
a sprinkle of kindness, a splash of smile
and a whole lot of sin

It might be hot, this love of mine
you can only sip a little at a time
too much is not good but great
so drink it down, don't hesitate
