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 love makes me glad

Your love lingers on my lips
as I swallow my pride
and realize all to often
I have nothing left to hide

Your love last beyond the light
as I drift off to sleep
my dream wrapped tightly
in your mansion's keep

Your love listens to my longing
as I plead my case out loud
a simple one with rhyming words
spoken above the crowd

Your love leads me lightly
as we walk hand in hand
I will help you find your way
your wish is my command

Your love leaves me laughing
as I recall the times we've had
I look forward to countless more
Your loves makes me glad.
