There is the physical, the emotional /intellectual and spiritual.
When I dream at night, you are there. I follow your every movement as you move about, sometimes seeming to be dancing, sometimes just in repose on a beach or asleep on our bed. I reach for you but stop short of touching you for not wishing to awaken you. Then I awake. As I transit from dream to reality I see your lovely face. We have been ‘spooning’ and I do not wish to move. My day has begun well.
Why do I hold your chair for you at the table? Yes, I know you are well able to do it for yourself but this is my opportunity to show my love even in little ways for all the many things you do for me.
When you smile and say ‘thank you’ or even when you are unaware that your presence in the room is so joyful to me, I watch as you sit, perhaps reading or when you are talking on the telephone and I hear your laughter radiating from you with love and warmth I am thrilled.
Why do I serve you first at the table? Because it is my joy to serve you and to thank God for you being in my life. I cherish what has been given to me and I show ‘thanks’ to He who brought you into my life.
Why do I listen to you so intently when you speak? I listen so that I will know your heart and of the things that are important to you. Then I am able to respond to your needs and desires. Why do I look into your eyes? Because I can look into your very core. I love what I see.
Why do I love to go shopping with you. I enjoy showing the entire world the wonderful woman I have been given to accompany me through this world’s journey everyday, every year for life. Then too, as we shop I enjoy helping to select the meals we will be preparing together and sharing together.I anticipate our time together as we sip and eat and smile.
Why do I love our physical touch? It is because we become one in body as well as in spirit. It is when we can say to one another the things we are thinking and feeling and even enjoy hearing our own words speaking aloud the things we have stored away in our heart. To hear our own words speak of our love and agree with the words and the thoughts we are expressing.
To catch the scent of you, to hear your quickened breath and to taste your lips while holding close to my heart the woman I love. I want this to never end…until we can continue this togetherness with Him.
Why do I look at you and no other woman? When I look at this colorless world I am made aware of so many lost souls looking for ‘a life’ and most of them walking about searching but not finding the ‘other half’, of their life. I have found you and there is no need to look and search any further. In you I have found joy, beauty, spirit and love. For me, there is no other. I have reason to love you with my physical heart, with my every thought in my mind and now to continue to love you in spirit.
Why do I think about these things? It’s what a happy man in love does.
This is me, it is who I am;
and that is, As I See It.
