My love For You

You And Me Forever

Everyday we have so many things to do

We wake up early and it is very late when our bodies crash

The next day our eyes are tired and we still try to accomplish everything

I think we took a page out of Jack and the Bean Stalk

The list grows as if it was made out of magic beans

One minute I look at it and then the next minute it is three pages long

Instead of a honey to do list

It reads more like the Gettysburg Address

Fore score and seven years ago...

I don't know if we will ever catch up

So thats why I say....

For today let's run away

Let's lock the doors and crawl back under the sheets

For that lazy afternoon nap

When we wake up refreshed

I will get you breakfast in bed

We can later snuggle

Remember that book that you wanted to read

Remember the old records I like to play

Let's make it our day

One that we can enjoy and tomorrow there will always be an endless list of things to do

But for now this is our moment

We can put the book down and turn the records off

And just talk

What's on your mind ?

Not all that other stuff

I mean tell me what makes you happy ?

Just like we just started dating way back when

Tell me your favorite color and your favorite flower too

Remember I just met you

You have eyes of dark brown and fingers soft to the touch

I listen to your every word and patiently watch

My wife before me holds my hand with such passion

I know we can never return to the simple life

But ever once and awhile I like to capture a moment in time

When nothing else matters except the two of us

.

when anyone says to me, you have a good husband.... I correct them and say,"I have a good marriage, and that is because i have to work hard at, all the time...."

That is only because i have so much emotional baggage..... anyway it is freezing here, stuck in because of the snow, and getting poorer and poorer, no one gets paid when we dont work,,,,, help. We will survive.... enjoyed your hub. The best things in life are free. But unfortunately i have a head ache.

Fantastic. I haven't been married for that long but even i yearn for days when we can just stop, ignore the rest of the world and appreciate each other.

DO -- OH I do hope you got to do that and if not - do it this weekend!!!! You need it and so does she!!!

George & I used to lie in bed in the morning and gaze out the window pretending we were in our own space ship and all we saw out the window were all the stars and galaxies as we sped by at the speed of light, but warm and cozy in our own private world in our spaceship. :-)

Doesn't matter what you do, it's that you're doing it just only together for the two of you. ALL those things on the list will wait. Most wouldn't get done anyway. By the way - one should never have more than 6 items on a daily To-Do list!!

And at times like this, yours should all 6 be "Enjoy the day together!"

Tell her a lot of us think she is a very lucky woman!

Beautiful poetry dream on. What a great reminder that in our society we really need to remember to slow down and smell the roses.

Kirutaye I think the love that you have from day one is a lovely reminder of all the love you want from every day after that.If you never let that beautiful love go you have the secret. Many people lose sight of and forget years later and end up in trouble or worse divorce.Congratulations on your marriage and may all your years be cheerished with such passion and love.That even through the toughest times you can make everything possible together.Darlene Sabella I appreciate such kind words and each day I start fresh trying to have so much fun and excitement that we both will always be happy.I can't fail if I always try my best!Acaetnna I am always learning and each time I come out on the Hub Pages my head is bursting with such pleasure of being alive and able to tell the world how lucky I have been.Many times a little rough around the edges but always willing to make it better.Prasetio30 The spirit of love is everywhere but some how people don't want to see it.I like to think we carry it with us like a backpack wherever we go.Thanks for bringing more Love here with you for everyone to enjoy! DrPastorcarlotta That is so much fun.There is nothing I like to do better than to make someone smile continuously until there sides ache.Especially when that someone happens to be me.Mylife=Adventure I can learn from you.Most people never admit when they make a mistake.You are wiser and beyond your years.I find I have learned so many wonderful things from my mistakes.I think life is just learning from one another to help others make less mistakes.Carolina Muscle Every time I see you I have to think did I workout today.Thanks for the great reminder!!I am finding more and more time to do it.It only took you and 40 years to beat me over the head.Nellieanna Once again you and George lead the way.It is so nice to see that I am doing something right.My dreams are so big that it is easy to see many pop all around me.I will try to limit my list to 6.I will have to cut it down slowly to 60 and work my way from there.Your 6 list will be on my top of my page forever.Minnetonka Twin I have found in the winter time we forget we still have roses.So I go into a local flower shop and smell all the flowers to keep me feeling great and on track.I would love to thank everyone who made my weekend so special!!!!You keep my dreams alive and well.
