MISC: Time worn wishes

As the years go by it gets harder to write you a love letter for birthdays & holidays, not in any way because time has worn down our love or diminished it in some manner, but very much the opposite -- because the passage of time has deepened our relationship to a level I didn’t even know was possible. How does one (even me!) begin to put that into words?

“I love you” seems so small by comparison. But I do, love you, with all my heart and then some. Throughout the daily grind, throughout the crisis great & small, throughout the precious moments, throughout the passion and the fury both, I love you throughout it all.

Change will happen, and who knows what the future will bring. I hope with all my being that Time will be kind to us and most especially to our children. But even when Time is cruel, even when changes come that bring us to our knees I know one thing that won’t change: I love you. It’s forever.

I cannot imagine this journey without someone such as you. You are everything I’m not, and even when that frustrates me to no end, (so often, I know) it also inspires unfathomable admiration. I’ve never known anyone like you and I’m so glad I had the good sense to choose you those many years ago. You are steadfast, deeper than the still waters you evoke, and gentle hearted beyond my belief sometimes. I know that…deep down I always know that in every fiber of my being. Even when I seemingly forget – it’s there, Honey, I promise.

So, Happy Birthday…know that you are loved beyond words, beyond time.

My heart is yours.
