to my best friend and partner

You fill up my senses
Like a night in a forest
Like a mountain in springtime
Like a walk in the rain
Like a storm in the desert
Like a sleepy blue ocean
You fill up my senses
Come fill me again
Come let me love you
Let me give my life to you
Let me drown in your laughter
Let me die in your arms
Let lay down beside you
Let me always be with you
Come let me love you
Come love me again

It’s by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done
To be so in love with you and so alone

Follow me where I go what I do and who I know
Make it part of you to be a part of me
Follow me up and down all the way and all around
Take my hand and say you’ll follow me

It’s long been on my mind
You know it’s been a long, long time
I’ve tried to find the way that I can make you understand
The way I feel about you and just how much I need you
To be there where I can talk to you
When there’s no one else around

Follow me where I go what I do and who I know
Make it part of you to be a part of me
Follow me up and down all the way and all around
Take my hand and say you’ll follow me

I’d like to share my life with you
Show you things I’ve seen
Places that I’m going to places where I’ve been
To have you there beside me and never be alone
And all the time that you’re with me
We will be at home

Follow me where I go what I do and who I know
Make it part of you to be a part of me
Follow me up and down all the way
Take my hand and I will follow you

    today’s date is not special but it is still a special day, as is every day. i am celebrating my love and admiration for a wonderful woman.
    sometimes i take her love, friendship and support for granted but lately i was reminded i couldn’t do it without her

  2. What a great reminder to men… to husbands. There is no promise for anyone of tomorrow… So, today is the day to celebrate the love of a woman, a mother, a wife.

    Proverbs 31

    A wife of noble character who can find?
    She is worth far more than rubies.

    Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.

    She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.

    She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.

    She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.

    She gets up while it is still dark;
    she provides food for her family
    and portions for her servant girls.

    She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.

    She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.

    She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.

    In her hand she holds the distaff
    and grasps the spindle with her fingers.

    She opens her arms to the poor
    and extends her hands to the needy.

    When it snows, she has no fear for her household;
    for all of them are clothed in scarlet.

    She makes coverings for her bed;
    she is clothed in fine linen and purple.

    Her husband is respected at the city gate,
    where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.

    She makes linen garments and sells them,
    and supplies the merchants with sashes.

    She is clothed with strength and dignity;
    she can laugh at the days to come.

    She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.

    She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.

    Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:

    “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”

    Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.

    Give her the reward she has earned,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

    – King Solomon

    dear johnathan,

    except for the part about “her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land” i can relate to most everything solomon had to say.

    thanks for interviewing him on my behalf 🙂
    and thanks for commenting!
