It"s Days Like This That Make Me Happy

I Feel Her Love

There was a time in my life when I had nobody

Even though I dreamed and prayed

For someone special to come into my life

Do we ever really know it will happen ?

If it does when ?

When your friends all seem to have somebody special in their lives

Life keeps going faster and faster

Does anyone know where the emergency brake is ?

Now seeing what I have

Not bragging but extremely grateful

That life has turned out this way

When we both work hard and share the same exhaustion

A bond that grows stronger and stronger

Trying to bring out the fabulous

No longer life is a competition

It is now and every day forward

A renewed love,caring and pleasure

That changes the way I feel

That continues to raise the bar

Expanding our horizons

We are a team

That functions together

As one hand helps the other

I feel the same way about Bev...we are a team, and together we are stronger than alone. Ain't it great?

billybuc It is so easy to dimiss the obvious. I have struggled hard in the past. I will say it many times if it wasn't for my wife I wouldn't have the time to write as much and do the things I love . In any one day there are a lot of things to do and we each have many responsibilities that require our full attention. Writing deserves the same attention. I look around and see so many people that aren't happy and are looking for something more. It is so close they can taste it. Then they find ways to pull apart and continue to find fault instead of enjoying all the strength and love they have made. Thank you for reading and sharing.

DREAM ON, wasn't it obvious from the beginning, "two are better than one" !? For my old-fashioned understanding yes it was/is... In my life the proverbial truth has been totally completed "Fathers can give their sons an inheritance of houses and wealth, but only the Lord can give an understanding wife."

Michael-Milec I see many couples who have their difficulties and others who are no longer together. I am blessed for it took me longer to find the love that suits me best. A love that continues to grow and learn new ways to stay fresh and exciting. Thank you for your support and nice comment. Have a pleasant night.

Your observation Michael is so correct about the couples creating for themselves difficulties in living together, or creating an environment of separation from the "loving" person. That part of "love" I will never understand.

Michael-Milec There are so many different phases and levels to life. Each with their own experiences and lessons. God only knows the big picture. We have but one piece of puzzle. Some people get a middle piece and think what am I going to do with that. I got a beautiful piece so unique that only four pieces out of millions will fit. I can't wait. Each day I try and see. Nope not today. One step closer to finding the one that does. I will try as long as it takes because I know when I find the piece that fits it is a match made in heaven. In my search I get to see so many other pieces that are so interesting. They all have a story to tell. What would it be like to be just a piece of puzzle. Waiting all day for someone to pick me up. Better yet how lucky are those pieces we keep trying to connect no matter what. If we are fortunate we get an edge or a corner. A color that only more of that color would match. I spend my days and nights loving life and all the things around me. Each time seeing so much pleasure in all that we do. Thank you for reading and sharing so many of my stories/poems I call stoems.

MsDora I only see what lay before me. I think of far away lands and my own home as one of the same. Wherever I go and if I stayed their long enough it would become my home. I would still want to work, eat, sleep and dream. Then life would be no fun unless I had people to share it with. Now throw wonderful good health and that sums up my life. People all around me come and go. I just want to squeeze all the juice out of life like a lemon. Then I go back and eat the pulp. Then I return once more and eat the skin. How many people like lemons? How many people squeeze the juice and have a taste? Then how many people know you can eat the skin ? So there is no waste. Have a great day. Share it with a friend and both have an incredible day. Call a few friends over and have a terrific time I call it a party. Do that over and over I call that life. Thank you for reading and sharing. May today bring you happiness and new found joy.

The breath behind your words has warmth in it. Your experience with finding someone special gives me feelings of happiness. I love people!

Energy fills my entire being when I'm with other folks. I love chocolate. I enjoy it more when sharing this goodness with others.

Wherever I am I'm at home.

Michael-Milec I often wonder what I will write next. Then I dismiss the thought and think about my day. What I loved the most, things I don't understand and things I couldn't stand. Somewhere hidden in all that comes words that tell my story. Then I thank God for giving me the opportunity to share with other people. So they might say hey I know how you feel. I have been there too. Tomorrow we will wake up and follow our dream. No matter how hard we will love what we do and everything we work out. Thanks so much for sharing and giving back to all those people who appreciate your comments and time.
