If there is one stereotype about men, in which we are almost universally accused of by women, it’s the ability for us to express Love. Not surprising, when I looked at today’s writing challenge topic, a bit of panic set it. ”I have to write what? A Love Letter?!?” Sappy, sticky, gooey love letter… Well, here is my attempt at it, let me know what you think?
Day 2 writing prompt from Cecily Kellogg: Now we’re veering in the opposite direction. I want you to write a love letter. Yes. A sappy, happy, loving letter to something or someone you love. I don’t care if it’s for your partner, your dog, or even cigarettes. I want you to write it as if you are a soldier at war and you are worried that these words of love will be the last the person or thing you love will ever see from you. Put your heart into it.
To Know Love.
In truth, I am good and humble guy, who as most other men keeps more inside then let’s the world to see. Don’t think I am bragging when I say, that I have been very blessed. Our Father (Thank You G~d!) have been blessed me with a sole to feel as deep as oceans, and spirit full of happiness and life. I am blessed with parents, who have brought me into this amazing world and raised me who I am; health to have the strength; wit to know how much I don’t know and still understand; grit to persevere in my long haul quests; heart to see the black from white, deep down in my gut when all around me gets grey and there is no light, no clear path to guide me right; curiosity, which finds the world around me amazing, full of wonder, I want to know, explore and live it! I am blessed with money to break bread, and put a roof above my head, and clothing on my back. I’ve traveled much around the world and seen amazing sights. I strive for vibrant life, a constant go, to give, to learn, to be the most of which I can become before the maker calls me back. I pray that day is long from now. Amongst all blessings that I have, there is THE ONE my dear, YOU! So special to me, that the though alone of how magnificent you are, makes me weep and puts a nut deep in my gut.
I think back to that warm, autumn day we met. I was a wreck, and nervous, stressed. I hope you can imagine the ruckus which filled the space that day, it felt like being in the hurricane, the noise of unfamiliar sounds and foreign things, swarms of hustling folk all busy with their own efforts. There I sat, the time was dragging, and the clock appears to tick-tack at glacier speed. In my mind thoughts of meeting you raced around with anticipation… and then, all of the sudden, that moment came, when time has stopped. You have arrived into my life; I held you in my arms and gazed upon a miracle, the miracle that’s you. The world stood frozen, and in it seems to be just you. I smiled with biggest grin from ear to ear, looking like a total fool, but not caring, because the only feeling I could feel was deep and total LOVE toward you. It struck as lightning, through every fiber of my being. It froze all, stopped all time, mind, life and gripped me in its hold, and permanently marked my heart with love toward you. I can’t tell how long I’ve held you, it might have been moments, minutes, or hours, but it felt as all eternity to me.
Of course, so many years passed since then. The Master Time is back in charge, propelling us down the pages of calendar, but since that moment, never once, was I the same. Life, has resumed its course in whole new world, the one with you in it. It brought along the trials, and triumphs, and smiles and frowns, and laughter, and tears of joy and tears of pain. Through all of that, I’ve learned a lot about my Love towards you. My love has grown, changed, evolved its boundless and unconditional; it does not demand reciprocity, bears no dependencies and places no obligations onto you. It is a blessing unlike any others, because it’s always present, it’s always on, it always IS.
I Love You! <3
Dedicated to my daughter.
