Waking up at 4 am to see the world around me being sprinkled with fresh white snow was not how I wanted to start my vacation. Luckily for my husband and I, though there was only one runway open, we were able to leave the tundra within a few hours of our scheduled flight.
Once we landed and saw the beauty of our destination, we were able to relax and enjoy the sights. I saw, met and experienced so many wonderful things.
The one that struck me the most can be displayed by this statue in the heart of Key West. This is how I felt vacationing with my husband. Larger than life. The center of his attention. Classy, elegant and special. This is what our marriage is all about; the perfect dance partner. A fairy tale with pages being written before our very eyes. We share endless conversations, sprinkled with a lot of humor. There is love and acknowledgement when we connect with our eyes. We are blessed.
Hopefully, many of you have moments like these. I would love to hear your larger than life moment.
I wrote this poem for my husband in July 2009. After 24 years of marriage, my heart beats.
I am sitting at the other end of the table.
I turn my head to hear what you have to say;
Your blue eyes penetrate my heart and soul.
You catch my eye and smile in half sentence.
You are mine. I am yours.
