Episode 037 ~Picture If You Will~

Dear Future Wife,
Give Me One Reason not to kiss you, if for any other reason I know you’re not running away or maybe you’re one for remarkable courage and I wouldn’t have you any other way. I remember how I said when I became a father, that I would read to our kids every night, my parents never did that for me so how do you explain my love of books but I want my daughter to know women of courage, Sabriel, Katniss, Tris, Ember and then there’s you.

You’re My Latest Greatest Inspiration, while I’m reading to the kids, I have to figure out how I’m going to get to bed… well no the problem is how am I going to sleep Can’t Take My Eyes Off You. No my phone is not more important, I swear how some people can forget, their kids of many legs, and yes I have so many pictures of my firstborn, he might even be jealous of you though. He’s the cutest thing ever and yet you made me have to buy a thesaurus; I’m writing to different dictionaries saying they got this word wrong or that word wrong, and my proof is only your beautiful face.

Then when I look in your eyes and see myself, I never knew, next thing I know I want to gaze in the mirror every morning, an hour-long selfie takes two seconds because I’m always smiling and I mean genuinely smiling; hell I’ll take you over a hoody any day. Summertime, you’re hot as Hell and as long as we avoid one season, I mean we can stay cuddled up in Winter and Spring is going to play havoc with my eyes but as long as you give me an invitation, come and Find Me. I’ll never be one of those people that says a picture is worth a thousand words, which is why you’ll find yourself in stories, poetry, and of course music; if only all those writers and performers knew you like me.

“It is an awesome feeling to know you are about to change someone’s life forever.” Tomorrow, When the War Began

You do this every single day; you can’t imagine what it’s like to be the one that sees you like this, every single day and to know that no one would ever believe me if I called you my own. Maybe that’s why I’m a writer, I like to brag, perhaps we give others hope, and yet when you say, I love you… seeing words. So possibly, somehow, someway a kiss is a good idea if only to still my hands and instead wrap my arms around you then again your picture frees me to work but whatever would I write about because in the end Picture If You Will…

I Will Have No Fear
