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.

Finding my way back to you

Baby while you sleep tonight
dream of me and hold on tight
keep that dream alive as morning breaks

Believe me when I say it's true
all I do is think of you
and I am going to do whatever it takes

To make sure that you feel my love
it'll warm you op like the sun above
give you the rest so really need

My love true my love is strong
my love is what wrote this song
I follow it wherever it might lead

Because I know it will bring me home
no matter how far I have to roam
my love will always find it's way back to you

So think me near when you need a lift
this love I offer as a gift
I hope it's enough to always see us through
