Women are many things

Women are many things, but two stand out.

They are our Mothers

The woman we fell in love with as a baby;
The woman who picked us up when we fell;
The woman who wiped our tears when we were hurt;
The woman who gave us that hug that made us feel better any band-aid ever could;
The woman who talked us through that time, our first crush broke our heart.

They are Our Best Friends, Our Partners, and Our Lovers

The woman who inspired us to reach for greater heights;
The woman who with their first kiss captured our heart;
The woman who held our hand and told us it would be alright in times of doubt;
The woman who stood beside and believed in us when no one else would;
The woman who makes our house our home

Women are our rock from birth till death.
Thank goodness for Women

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

Another morning, another commute, and there she was again the same seat, same smile, she was gorgeous, and it took everything you had not to stare.  But this morning, she looked up from her phone directly at you, and as your eyes met for the first time, she smiled.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

It was the end of the night, and you knew you were falling for her, but past relationships had you tongue-tied, unable to say those three little words.  She looked at you, and as your eyes met, she said: “Promise me this will never end, promise me you will never leave.”

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

You looked as she cradled the newborn baby in her arms, your emotions overflowing.  She looked at you, and as your eyes met, eyes overflowing with tears, she said: “it’s our son.  Our beautiful son.”

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

The years passed, and you were going through a rough spot. The arguments were more frequent; the silence at the dinner table was deafening; the woman you had held in your arms almost every night now slept with her back to you.  She looked at you, and as your eyes met, eyes devoid of the emotion that was once so strong, and she said:  “What are we doing and where are we going.”

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

You weathered the storm and rediscovered your love for each other.  It seemed that now, after all these years, after raising two beautiful children, after all you had been through together, your love for each other was stronger than ever.  But sadness filled the air as she had fallen ill, and your time together was now limited.  You held her hand as she lay there, and she looked at you, and as your eyes met, eyes filled with sorrow, she said: “Don’t be sad. I lived a beautiful life, and it all started on a morning commute when I happen to look up and see my future staring back at me.  I love you.”

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

The house is empty now; her memory is all you have. You look at a picture of the two of you holding each other and smiling, and as your eyes met, you say I love you.

There’s A Chill In The Air Tonight – The Warm Side Of The Pillow

There’s a chill in the air tonight, but it’s warm in my bed because you’re here with me; the look in your eyes warming me like a summer night as we cuddle, talk and laugh.  There has never been anyone like you before, and I hope I never have to wonder again will I find anyone like you.  The others all had their qualities, but none compare to you. Each kiss we share, each time you smile, only confirms that my heart belongs to you. I don’t know everything, but this I know is true.

How do you keep the music playing?

Patti Austin and James Ingram once asked in song: 

How do you keep the music playing?

How do you make it last?

How do you keep the song from fading Too fast?

How do you lose yourself to someone And never lose your way?

How do you not run out of new things To say?

And since you know we’re always changing How can it be the same?

I may have lost myself to you but in doing so I found my way. 

I’ll never run out of new things to say because your intelligence and beauty inspire me. 

I may always be changing but my love for you is as strong as the day we shared our very first kiss. 

After all this time we are still lovers, still best friends, and our love for each other grow stronger every day

Because of this I have no worries, no concerns that our music will ever end.
