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.

Your SOng

I will write you a love song
and when it is finished I'll sing it out loud
a tune from out the encroaching throng
a melody to part the hapless crowd

All will fall silent
as a single note rings out
bring peace to the violent
as back up angles shout

I love this women
and I want the world to know
my vows to her rest unbroken
my love as pure as snow

I love being by her side
together forever are we
This is the best ride
an endless road I see

This is my song to you this eve
and every day here on
kiss me now so I can breath
and get on with singin your song.
