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

Sunday Morning, Coffee and Her

She, beautiful as always, was sipping her coffee and reading the Sunday Times.  The actual paper mind you because is there any other way to really read the Sunday Times? While I was sipping my coffee and looking at the highlights of last night’s basketball games on the iPad.  One choice in media might differ but one thing is the same, our love for coffee.  But Sunday morning coffee, there’s something different about Sunday morning coffee. Its aroma fills the early morning air gently awaking your senses as it eases you into a day where your only responsibilities are to laze around and try to conquer the New York Times crossword puzzle.

But you know what’s the best thing about Sunday morning coffee? It’s sipping on it while I sneak a peek at her, the one I love sitting across from me sipping on her coffee.  She may appear to be in her own world behind the pages of the Times but every now and then she sneaks a peek too. Glancing over the pages of the paper she tilts her head slightly to the left and flash me that little smile that says I’m right here and yes, I love you too.

So, the next time you’re sipping your Sunday morning coffee and they’re sitting across from you take a minute to savor it. Because Sunday morning coffee is always better when you share it with someone you love.image

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.
