    Default Leave nothing unsaid

    Behold, the word.
    A conglomeration of letters, a code of shapes
    a collection of ABC's, that discerns meaning to the recipient.

    Words, a gift.
    'I love you': mine. It is enough.
    I've known you for a long, long time,
    more than not, really, and
    I know you do not find words
    easily.

    Actions speak louder than,
    roll over and hold me, shaking in the summer,
    words.

    When I won that award in high school,
    it was you who carried me high
    And when I lay sweaty and cold in the hospital,
    it was you who held my hand, and demanded more blankets.
    Every time.

    You, gloriously quiet you,
    with your soft denim eyes
    and your firm musician's grip, even now,
    when you don't play anymore.
    I used to imagine how it'd feel to be played
    by those hands
    Now, I know the song by heart.
    Oh, how I loved to kiss you
    after a concert. You spoke, then,
    an entire library of love in those kisses

    Now you find poetry through your lens, and see
    panorama-ed beauty across this country.
    It's easy to love how you gather many perspectives
    before judging a subject.
    I love the photographer's paraphenalia
    that litters our living room,
    our unrugged, uncurtained living room.
    Mr. Jack-of-All-Trades, you will provide.

    It's okay that we can drive to the beach
    or the mountains, 5 hours and 3, without saying a word.
    It's enough for me that you reach
    to hold my hand.
    Still.

    Silence doesn't scare me anymore.
    I can close my eyes and find peace,
    even in daylight, even in the dark.
    I long to hear your heart, but you cannot, I know.

    Hear me now, my old-blue-jeaned love,
    and find truth:
    Your love saved me, every day, in every way.
    Your quiet, unspoken, unwritten, constant love.
    What's a word, anyway?
    I love you.

    Thanks - maybe that will in part explain why I've been so touched by this thread.

    Wow.

    Me too, i'm insanely jealous.

    True, enduring love.

    But then I've been sleeping at Super 8 in Minnesota.

    It's good to hear from you, Paul. I'm glad that you're back home, safe.

    It's probably your eyebrows.

    Don't we have some new smilies to take care of comments like that?! Oh my! (I missed you.)

    I've been listening to the lyrics of songs much more this summer, thanks to my two poetry tutors, whereas before I was into the notes. I discovered that my girls know this one by heart; it was on one of those CD's hubbie made me in college. Apparently he plays it a lot when he drives!


    It's Indigo Girls, Power of Two:

    Now the parking lot is empty
    Everyone’s gone someplace
    I pick you up and in the trunk I’ve packed
    A cooler and a 2-day suitcase
    Cause there’s a place we like to drive
    Way out in the country
    Five miles out of the city limit we’re singing
    And your hand’s upon my knee

    So we’re okay
    We’re fine
    Baby I’m here to stop your crying
    Chase all the ghosts from your head
    I’m stronger than the monster beneath your bed
    Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
    We’ll look at them together then we’ll take them apart
    Adding up the total of a love that’s true
    Multiply life by the power of two

    You know the things that I am afraid of
    I’m not afraid to tell
    And if we ever leave a legacy
    It’s that we loved each other well
    Cause I’ve seen the shadows of so many people
    Trying on the treasures of youth
    But a road that fancy and fast
    Ends in a fatal crash
    And I’m glad we got off
    To tell you the truth

    Cause we’re okay
    We’re fine
    Baby I’m here to stop your crying
    Chase all the ghosts from your head
    I’m stronger than the monster beneath your bed
    Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
    We’ll look at them together then we’ll take them apart
    Adding up the total of a love that’s true
    Multiply life by the power of two

    All the shiny little trinkets of temptation
    (make new friends)
    Something new instead of something old
    (but keep the old)
    All you gotta do is scratch beneath the surface
    (but remember what is gold)
    And it’s fools gold
    (what is gold)
    Fools gold
    (what is gold)
    Fools gold

    Now we’re talking about a difficult thing
    And your eyes are getting wet
    I took us for better and I took us for worse
    Don’t you ever forget it
    Now the steel bars between me and a promise
    Suddenly bend with ease
    The closer I’m bound in love to you
    The closer I am to free

    So we’re okay
    We’re fine
    Baby I’m here to stop your crying
    Chase all the ghosts from your head
    I’m stronger than the monster beneath your bed
    Smarter than the tricks played on your heart
    We’ll look at them together then we’ll take them apart
    Adding up the total of a love that’s true
    Multiply life by the power of two

    Now I'm happy for you.
    And miserably, abjectly bummed out for me.
    The eyebrow thing was sort of a joke, by the way.
    I'm sure it's not your eyebrows.

    I did get your joke... even one of my daughters cracked up as she walked by. She is so old for eight... (or are you so young for 45?! Hmmm...)

    Don't be miserable. Bummed out is okay. If you would like for me to 'color you more' I will. Just say the, um, word and I'll praise you to the skies.
