There’s a Chill in the Air Tonight – The Cold Side Of The Pillow

There’s a chill in the air tonight, and my bed feels especially chilly because you’re not here with me. It’s true, I still think about you, and how we would cuddle on nights like this, talking and laughing.  The look in your eyes warming me like a summer night.  There was never anyone like you before, and while there have been others, there has never been anyone like you since. The others all had qualities that made them unique, and though I know I shouldn’t have, when I compared them to you, they could never quite measure up to you. Each kiss only reminded me of the kisses we shared.  Each smile only made me long for yours that much more.  I suppose the thought of you and what we had will always haunt me.  My heart still belongs to you. If that is a good or bad thing, I don’t know, but I know it 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. 

I Walk The Path With You

It’s been a long road and along the way I have had many experiences that have shaped the very essence of who I am. But it wasn’t until you walked into my life that I could truly say for the first time I saw clearly what my life was meant for. Today I stand here with you ready to walk a new path in my life. As with any path there will be unknowns and obstacles ahead. But knowing you will be walking the path with me I have no fear, because I have no doubt our love build on trust and mutual respect will carry us through any obstacle we may face.

I promise you that you will always be:

My partner who I walk beside the rest of your life.
My best friend who I will not only listen to but hear
My soulmate who my heart will always beat in unison with.

I say to the world that when I:

Hold your hand.
Hear your voice,
See your smile,
Look into your eyes,

I know a love that I did not think was possible.

It is true that when we are apart I count the minutes until I see you again, until I can hold you in my arms again. Why? Because you and only you:
Bring me happiness
Have awaken my soul
Have given me strength
Are my partner
Are my best friend
Are my soul mate
Are my everything

I love you

Because of You

Because of you I want to be the man that

Opens your door.
Cooks your dinner.
Gives you flowers just because.

Because of you I want to be the man that

Takes the time to truly understand you.
Supports and encourages you.
Fulfills your wants and desires.

Because of you I want to be the man that

Is a strong shoulder for you to lean on.
Is a sounding board for you to vent to.

Because of you I want to be the man that

Never stop telling you I love with my words.
Never stop showing you I love her with my actions.

Because of you I want to be the man that

With every kiss leave you lost in the moment of passion so powerful it says I will always love you and I will never leave your side.

Because of you I want to be that man.Be the man

Strong Enough To Remember You Now

Days weeks months, that’s how long I told the world I didn’t even think about you anymore. But that was a lie and whenever I let my guard down you were there in my memories. Reminding me of the time we walked down that street, ate at that restaurant, listened to that song, or saw that movie. I would do my best to push you out, but I couldn’t, the memory of us and what we were was too strong and it hurt, it hurt a lot.

There have been others since you, they’ve come and gone, none lasted for very long. I would asked myself why? Was I subconsciously compared them to you? Was I being too protective of my heart? Was I building a wall around it, so no one could ever walk away from and break it again? The truth is I was doing all those things and more

But time has a funny way of healing you. For me it was a daily grind and I came to realize that trying to forget someone you loved as much as I loved you is… well it’s impossible. But I got a little stronger each day and slowly I began to remember who I was before you and I started picked up the pieces. Slowly and meticulously I put them back together. The scar where you once resided in my heart still a vivid reminder of us. But not a symbol of pain anymore.

Today I’m strong enough to remember the good and bad and the love we shared. The thought of you is no longer painful, no longer an obstacle to my moving forward. Now when I remember what we once had it brings a smile to my face.   I guess that is because deep down there will always be that special place that you occupy in my heart and I’m okay with that because I’m strong enough to remember you now.

Not Just A Door

It was a long workday followed by an unusually brutal commute. Exhausted I stood in front of my door and suddenly I was overcome with a sense of happiness. Happy to be home? No, that’s not it. Sure this day was rough but no more than hundreds of days before it. So, what was it? I know, it was because on the other side of the door she was there. Ever since she’s been on the other side of the door it wasn’t just a door, it’s the door to a home, a door I looked forward to opening all day. An ordinary door she had transformed into a door to my heart. It was with that realization I turned the key and opened the door and there she stood and I knew I was home.

That Very First Kiss

That very first kiss I’ll always remember that very first kiss.

It was unlike any kiss I had before, a moment of passion so powerful it stirred my soul, an electricity so strong that it shook my body.  That night it wasn’t just our lips that touched but also our souls.

I always knew you were different, that there was something special about you. Just the thought of you made sweat pour from my pores, my heart beat faster and my emotions grow stronger.  Never had I felt this way before and to be honest at first, I didn’t really know what do with it.

There you were every waking moment even when you weren’t there occupying every inch of my heart and my soul. What is this hold you have over me I wondered? Was this just some grown-up school yard crush? No, it couldn’t be, this was clearly so much more. Then I kissed you for the very first time and it all became so clear you weren’t just another, you were my soulmate.

Now there are those who scoff at the notion of soulmates, no such thing they say and there are those who believe but say don’t waste your time looking because you can spend your whole life and never find them. But I need search no more because with that very first kiss I had found mine.

I wonder did a little bit of you transfer to me and a little bit of me transfer to you with that very first kiss? I think it must of, because no matter where we are or how far apart we may be we’re never truly alone. We’re always with each other. With that very first kiss we gave each other the keys to our hearts and our souls and here we are years later still holding on to them.

So, let others wonder if it’s true because I know that it is with that with that very first kiss did a love affair began and my soulmate did I find.94705FB9-0BC3-46B1-991B-E578A42B9A84

 

 

I’m Not Him

Lately you’ve been distant.

I know something bothering you, but I can only guess because you won’t let me in.

Do you worry how I’ll react if you do?

Maybe it’s because you worried how he would react.

Do you feel you’ll be a burden to me if you do?

Maybe it’s because he made you feel that way.

Do you think I won’t listen if you do?

Maybe it’s because he never listened.

Do you think I just won’t care?

Maybe it’s because he never did.

Full disclosure, there will be times that I won’t fully understand what you are going through

But I’ll always try.

There will be times I won’t agree with you.

But I’ll never judge you.

There will be times l will offer you a shoulder to cry on.

But I’ll never take that to mean you’re weak.

You and I are partners. You’re my lover and my best friend.  No, I am not him, not today, not tomorrow, not on my worst day.
