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.

She thinks the same of me.

If you only really knew
how much it is I love you
If only I had the words to say
I would tell you how I feel each day

When I wake and find you there
my heart begins a faster beat
sleep leaves my eyes as I stare
and take you in from head to feet

While away I cannot think
of anything but your face
the longer away the deeper the sink
thought of you I won't erase

When evening comes we settle in
and put the kids to sleep
this is our time for a little sin
secret's and promises to keep

I wouldn't want another life
I couldn't be more happy
I know I have the perfect wife
and I know she thinks the same of me
