An Ode To My Love
I find myself thinking back to last night… and the highs and lows of everything that happened between us and I’m still left with… I adore you. I remember your bright brown eyes and how they conjured tears of joy at certain periods of bliss and content and how I hugged you until they floated away… off they went. Yet you, still looking like a birthday present that I couldn’t wait to unwrap and all I wanted to do was wrap myself and my thoughts around and into you and and lay my head on your chest ’till we both slept it through. You’re my untouchable. There’s nothing I love more than conveying to you the whispers on my heart. Those soft lingering scripts that you’ve imprinted and left marked. The whispers that cry out to you, gently, rustling through my soul as the leaves do to trees, trampling on my heart but not so as to leave heavy-laden footprints, but heavy-laden love prints that serve to connect. I learned from you long ago that success in life and love is measured not so much by the position one takes in relation to it, but by the obstacles which have been overcome while trying to succeed at it. Every poem, every story, every hug and kiss adds substance to me in such a way; you’ve enriched my life just by knowing, feeling, experiencing, and being constantly enveloped in your love. And in return, the emotion I have for you has caused me to reexamine my attitudes and beliefs regarding it, has helped me to understand how to continually be a better person not only for myself, but most importantly for us. Every day we create new meaning within each other and that includes the good times and the bad. To be in love with you is to experience a rush of unconditional love and it is the epitome of aiming high and living life as graciously as possible, while I persevere off of that high. You taught me that the greatest resource anyone can have is knowledge and love, and a passion for both. They reciprocate through the life we lead and the obstacles we overcome. I’ve made many mistakes along the way and you’ve always been there to guide me back to our place, the one we call home, nestled in securely you’ve more than filled that void. Daily, you restore my faith in it and you reinforce within me the notion that without faith nothing is possible, and with it nothing is impossible. Forgive me for sometimes being the biggest fool in love to ever grace your heart. But know that with everything in me you reside in my deepest recesses. I am your captive and although sometimes loving me is hard, it isn’t impossible.
