Today is the day!


Exposing my emotions to the World!  A writer does this every day.  But this... this is more of a declaration of love, and is specifically dedicated to my wife, Linda.  I hope she reads it on her birthday. :)



Impossible to dream …

for none can match the sparkle of your soul,
or the bloom of your kindness,
None has the depth of your kiss
or the vibrancy of your compassion.
There’s none as bright as your laugh,
or illuminating as your smile …
and where is the intensity
as in the constancy
you give to me?

There is none as bright as your eyes,
none as soft as your touch,
none as comforting as your voice,
none as beguiling as your glance,
none as enchanting as your grace.
I’m lost to find a colour as fine
as any part of you …
and yet …
you colour and light up my entire life.

As always Allen - delight to read and ponder. And how blessed we are to find a soul mate - like Linda.

A beautiful tribute, Allen. I needn't ask how she liked it.

Brought me instantly to tears, way up here in my old age! I recognise these feelings well, often wondering how ever I could have earned the grace of Anna's company - and had to finally realise that nothing one does can earn one such bliss. It is by grace one meets someone, like you met Linda, as I met Anna. And please give her my congratulations, from way up here in the north!
