An Open Letter to my love, with help from a song’s lyrics.  High Gag Factor.

**
Ordinary no, I really don’t think so
Not a love this true
Common destiny, we were meant to be
Me and you

When I think how I challenged God by saying, “I will never get married again, ever! Not unless YOU write it in the sky, ‘Nan, this is The One!’”  I thought I was safe. Well, I could be safe – safe from heartache – safe from bullies – safe from being involved with those who didn’t have my best interests in mind. My heart was protected.

Once upon a time book

Oh, but I dreamed. I would devour stories of love soaring above the ordinary. I would catch whispers that there were those who had a once-in-a-lifetime love. I hungered for someone who could love me just for me. I wanted the whole fairy tale true love.

Like a perfect scene from a movie screen
We’re a dream come true
Suited perfectly for eternity
Me and you

And here you came, so quietly into my life.  An innocent meeting so no walls came up. You truly were a dream come true. No, that is not true. I had no idea what true love was so I could never have dreamed of and longed for you.

Two bound hearts

My heart, you have fulfilled every one of my fantasies and dreams, but also beyond. I did not know love could be this way. I had no idea two people could suit so perfectly. I had no idea love could encompass me and set me free at the same time.

Every day, I need you even more
And the night time, too
There’s no way – I could ever let you go
Even if I wanted to

We talk about the impossibility of living without one another. We swear if one died, the other would never be able to even consider another. It isn’t that we couldn’t go on living. It is that it would be so hard. I waited twelve years for you. How could there be a replacement for a perfect love? I wouldn’t even want to try. No one could live up to the reality of you.

Every day I live, I try my best to give
All I have to you
I thank the stars above
That we share this love
Me and you

You challenge me to be my best. You make me want to be a better person. You create in me the desire to give you all I have and am, and to create a perfect haven for you, wrapping you in my love so you are never cold, never feel alone, never feel unloved.

In your arms is the safest place I’ve ever been. I love living in this world we have created together. It is breathtaking.

Ordinary no, I really don’t think so
Just a precious few
Ever make it last
Get as lucky as
Me and you

How did I get to this place where I am part of the precious few who make it last? Who have that once-in-a-lifetime love – that “made-in-heaven” creation that brings such joy? Only God, because it is a true miracle. We are a dream come true – we are suited perfectly, for eternity.

Me and you, baby. Me and you.
