It seems I missed the opportunity to wish you, a "Goodnight, Pleasant Dreams", my dear.
Many would say a small thing as Things go. What with the Trumpet blaring out "I Love You" and the Bassoons low mournful note of "Goodbye", and in between, the blazing Pinions of love's "Do or Die".
But here is a Home!! This thing made of Stone and Brick, Trees cut to fit. Call them Love, Faith, Charity and most crucial Hope.
This small profound edifice is held together by the Mortar(Good morning, Beautiful. How are you today) and Lathe ( let's do this together. Can I do anything for you? May I ease your burden My Dear. How can I Help.) And the Nails of Iron and the Glue that Binds( Good night. And Peaceful Dreams, Sleep here in my arms.). It's all these little things that hold it together. The Constant Work that Love Engenders in one another to Build Together. That Proclaim Quietly but Resoundingly, One Moment to the next, Day upon Day, Month to Month, and Year after year, that We are Companions in this Life. That I will not forget that My Friend is with me and to always Undertake for the best for My Helpmate.
That is the bedrock upon which Love of each other and all the rest is built.
And so,when all the nourishment I want is in front of me.. Your mind... With all your Hopes and Dreams, Fears and desires, your Passion and your Apathy, your Great Strengths and your small Limitations!!!
All the memories we created together. When seen through your eyes The perspective and light, have changed all I see, as if for the first time.
You and our first kiss, Discovering in ourselves each other. That is what it is about. Learning where we fit together like a pair of double doors that had been used individually in different houses.
The years apart gave us different wear and an admixture strength and weakness. A Fine smoothed finish polished by countless hands, yet Rough here or there, where kicked open or the small crack from when we stood firm against those of Ill repute who used without care.
But when finally brought to the others side, Its obvious they were made to fit together from the start, that this is where each belongs. Supporting one another and facing the world, Side by Side.
To our Friends. ALL-WAYS Open an our Ownself.., we allow our selves the privilege of accepting that we all have flaws and own is that we Dont deny ours.
Remember that while we apart gained and lost and so did they. If you look we might need some sanding here or there. A bit of planing and joined in a couple spots. But .. We were always for eachother. Made to stand together each fiting the other a left and a right the same in their differences..complimet.
