The high school bf sent me a wonderful poem yesterday, so I thought I'd save it here where I can find it easily.
Anybody interested can check it out The Love Of My LifeAs I trudge along through the silent forest,
I think of you and I'm up to the test.
Farther and farther, with no end in sight,
Thoughts of you drive me forward on my seemingly endless plight.
Suddenly the trees disappear, the sound of the wilderness slowly dies,
And there you are standing beside me..., looking longingly up into my eyes.
You take my hand and we walk together as one,
Leading me in another direction, towards the setting sun.
Is this real? You are so warm and smell so sweet,
Your beauty surrounds me, blocking the suns burning heat.
We speak no words, our thoughts are the same,
I would follow you anywhere my Love, my heart, only you can tame.
You drop my hand and smile as you slowly fade away,
I scream,"Come Back!!","Please Come Back", "I Want You To Stay!!!".
Alone again, I look around to see, I'm exactly where I wanted to be.
Your front door is but ten feet away, the heat is so strong, I begin to sway.
There you are, standing in the now open threshold,
You have brought me back safely to you, my Love, and if I may be so bold,
I will Love you forever, even amid all the worldly strife,
You are the one, The one and only, You are the Love of my Life.
It just feels so special to have someone feel these things and express them so wonderfully. I can't believe that only one short year ago I never imagined I'd ever connect with this guy again in my life . . .
So, even with having to run to the doctor today for an emergency blood test, with two sick cats at home and three days in a row of 7:30 a.m. meetings, even with summer winding down and the U.S. Open over and everything else, life is still so very, very good.ETA: This now officially makes me puke!
