Taking a Boat Ride
MY FOREVER LOVE
From the moment I looked into those chocolate brown eyes (on that Christmas Eve - what a wonderful surprise gift), I fell madly and completely in love with you. You were such a quiet and shy girl at first...But you soon found your voice and then there was no shutting you up! How I miss our little "talks"
When the people in my life disappointed me or let me down, it didn’t matter because you were always there with your soft eyes and sweet kisses. You always knew when mommie was upset and you did your darndest to make me smile - it worked every time
You never asked for much. You were so content just to know your mommie was home with you. How I miss those countless hours I spent on the couch with you laying in your bed at my feet - thinking I was watching TV - but knowing now that I was enjoying our alone time together. How many hours I’ve watched you sleep and just felt so overwhelmed with love it actually hurt.
You were my reason for getting out of bed in the morning - and my reason for going to bed at night (as you were always the one who decided when it was bedtime). For the last fourteen-plus years, my entire world revolved around you. Every decision I made - where I lived, where I worked, who I dated, where I vacationed - was all carefully built around what I thought would make you happiest. I cannot remember what my life was like without you - it’s as if I didn’t really start to live until I met you. I never knew it was possible to fully and completely love another being so much that you would without question do anything for them, and I cannot imagine ever having that feeling again. My guiding force is gone now, and I am wandering aimlessly without you. I am counting the moments until I can hold you in my arms again!
