a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Sometimes I Forget...

A beer tab
Was my first ring
And we camped
Out in the rain.

He courted me
On train bridges
In leaky boats and
On mountainsides.
He made me laugh
I loved his eyes
We heard the same music
We believed.

Non-traditional courtship
Won me
Love is not always
Diamonds and flowers.

For me
It's found rocks,
Little boy candy bars
And old broken glass.

For him
It's back rubs,
Pineapple upside-down cake,
And fish bait.

Knowing together
There is nothing
We cannot do
Is love.

When you know
All the tomorrows
Are just for you
That is love.

A poem well written about how extraordinary true love is and can be.We don't all need diamonds to impress us, when we have true love, when you know all the tomorrows are just for you. I love this Gail. It's solid in the heart. It's Love.

My engagement ring was my wedding ring.
And we learned you can put a sleeping bag the wrong way on the side of a hill and when it rains on that hill, a gas lantern isn't warm enough. ;o)

Lovely wonderful post, Gail. Have as wonderful a weekend. :o)

This is the stuff of real love, Gail, ordinary moments that became magical in the memories they created. To know this kind of love, not the stuff of magazines or movies, but the real stuff that keeps two together through all the hard times in life, that is a precious, precious gift. Obviously you have found it!
