I've always said, "I don't believe in love at first sight. You have to really know a person to truly be able to say you love them."
I was wrong.
It only took one look at those dark brown, puppy dog, "bedroom" eyes and I fell so, so deeply in love. I was a goner ...
Oh, it was no temporary, fleeting emotion. I love him still.
I wanted to make all the world right for him. But I couldn't. He had battles of his own to fight and there was nothing I could do to help him.
It didn't keep me from trying.
If a person's love could heal, my love for him would have done so. By him, I learned the power of prayer and surrender of all things
I wanted to comfort him, to gather him up and hold him close against my bosom and keep him there for eternity.
I couldn't do that either.
But he'll forever maintain his own place in the deepest recesses of my heart,
whether I can hold him or not.
I wanted to give him every good thing, every joy imaginable, to put a smile on his face that no rainy day could wash away, one that no trial nor storm could ever phase.
I couldn't do that either.
But his laughter kept me strong.
He's so tall and masculine and handsome. Yet, he's compassionate and kind and loving. He's extremely intelligent. He has a quiet confidence mixed with a strong dose of admirable humility, never arrogant nor boastful. He's got a fantastic sense of humor, the mildest of temperaments and a healthy reverence for God
and for me.
I will love him forever. Nothing in the world can change that.
Not even him.
Somehow, he is comfortable in my love for him, even if it can be overwhelming at times. Amazingly enough, he loves me too!
He understands me like few do and loves me all the more just for me being me.
He is my shining star on darkest nights.
He is my joy.
He is my song.
he is my son.
... for Daniel

Treava, This is exquisite, and builds so effectively that you took my breath away. Who could this amazingly beautiful man be?? Your son. Wham, the end. Great writing, my friend--you got me! Sooo good to see you here again. Love, Sherry

Lovely sentiments, and a surprise ending. But again, I had a hard time reading it, as it stretched so far from the left to the right that I had to keep moving the page over to read the whole line. Maybe it is because of the pics? They were lovely, too, however...Helen
