For all the Care-Givers, especially the Spouses such as my wife- JUNE
Unlike you, I have never suffered
Those tears on my pillow are not mine
In this darkest of nights I will not sleep
I do not stumble on this rocky and treacherous path
Now that we are being swept out into the wine dark sea
You: who have borne the burden of increasing responsibilities and a shrinking life with authentic love and courage
You: who has had your true love, your main man, stolen, leaked away from you daily
You: who has defended my honor and pride by lying to cover for my mistakes.
You: who saw your life's dream implode, then swept up the pieces and was off to work before noon.
You: who hold my trust, my power, my family, my Muse and my love
You: who have fought for me, shopped and cooked for me, tandem-danced with me, fed me and somehow still laughs at my stupid jokes.
No, you are the one who has suffered
I have become your Summer man, some days are good, “some are”(Summer) not
It's hard not to be self-centered when it takes all my concentration just to tie my shoes.
But, Heaven still takes my collect calls,
“Forgive me for my sins against you” that fails miserably.
I know that and that there is no blame...
When “I love you” seems so inadequate…
Idiopathic, 3 musketeer Logic
All for one and all for one....but none for you.
Thank you for giving me your heart, your love and your only life, entirely...
I feel that I must be the luckiest man on the face of G-d's Earth..
I thank G-d for all the gifts we have been given, so many wonders, so much beauty...
And for all the great things that await us, Back to/ in the future....
