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.

I thought I was happy.

I was living my life
yeah, doing fine
Having myself
one hell of a time
Not a worry about
what tomorrow would bring
just having fun
and doing my thing

And then came you
from out of the blue
helping me find
an even better time

You opened my world
to new horizons
lifted me higher
to see the sun rise'n
Brought me to the edge
where I thought I would fall
held me out furthur
so I could see it all

I never knew a good time
until I spent time with you
I never had a ending rhyme
to share share my poet's view

I thought I was happy
and then you came along
and gave me a life
that's worth a rock song.
