(Al Green’s music is the perfect example of “negative space.”  That is the space within lyrics that give more life to the words there.  Sometimes, saying less says much more.  Day 281…)

When I look in your eyes, for all the years, I see me loving you and you loving me.  It seems to me that I’m still wrapped up in your love…

Thank you.
For understanding what “for better or worse” means
And still meeting me at the altar,
Saying
I do.

Nothing
Still
Nothing compares to meeting your gaze
And receiving a smile in return
An exchange of words some people go lifetimes without hearing
And others go days in their lifetimes without having heard them in a while.

They say it’s better to love and lost
Than to never loved at all
Thank you
For keeping that adage from being personal experience
