Love Lives Here…
We are the original star-crossed lovers! Fifty-eight years ago we got reacquainted, engaged, married and began our journey. Now we are entering our eightieth year celebrations…your birthday on Valentine’s Day and mine in July. What a trip it is and how grateful I am that you decided to call me on that day in May.
Live Free My Love
My heart is wide open these days
When I look at you.
You feel so warm and close
So nearly dearly a part of me.
Even when we’re not touching
Your essence surrounds me.
Deep sounds of you rumble through my body
Vibrating the core of me.
My silence is shattered with a song
Elevating the day from silence to nonsense.
Songs speaking your mood, your thoughts
With lyrics revealing a being unclothed,
A public man of hidden passions
Wearing a cloak of laughter and control
Over pain lodged beneath a shield of
Casual concern masking the buried
Need for Yes to your dreams
And cheering your vision ever onward.
You are so elegantly human.
So overflowing with a child’s love.
Wanting to burst through reserve,
Wanting to dance and sail on the moon,
Wanting to float balloons at the center of the world,
Wanting love and joy and…
Live free, My Love.
