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.

It's you

If I could hold you all night long
and sing to you my simple song
I think that you would understand
that it's you who makes me what I am

It's you that makes the sun rise
to get me through my day
It's you who still acts suprize
When I can't find the words to say

It's you who still believes I can
when others say I won't
It's you and your simple plans
that never have a don't

It's you who keeps the dark night
from taking my soul away
It's you who holds so desperate tight
until the break of day

It's you I love for all you are
and all you give to me
It's you who shines like a star
leading me to where I need to be
