Life is damn near perfect these days.

I wrote this poem for my sweetie. Then I wrote a poem titled ONCE IN A BLUE MOON about the email conversations that took place after she read it. I'm reposting this because the two poems belong together.


My life now has new meaning,
since I was given this wonderful gift.
I’ve found new reasons to smile
and it has given me such a lift.

As we share our mutual passions,
each day brings new thrills.
We ascribe and then amend
the ever shifting of our wills.

A dreamy afternoon,
listening to our favorite songs.
Each new passing day
sensing more & more that we belong.

Sharing a glass of wine
after the evenings dinner.
Anticipating a lifetime,
each day knowing I’m the winner.

It’s no longer just a dream,
or something I’m just hoping to do.
My life now is nearly perfect,
since I received the gift of you.

It's so refreshing to read of such shared happiness, in a world where everyone seems to be giving up on love and marriage. It is so rare these days. I hope you can write these love notes to your sweetie for years to come.

Beautiful. You are quite the romantic and you sound very happy.
