I Need a Love Song
I don't know about you but I'm a sucker for a good love song, however, I can't find a love song that speaks to my DH and me, I'm cheesy, he isn't, I love James Taylor, Harry Connick Jr. and Sting, he loves Coldplay, swing music and Mumford & Sons, it's a conundrum. (I love that word.)
He knew he was going to marry me before we even met, he saw me from the back of an Institute class, I always sit in the front, and went home and told his family that he saw the girl he was going to marry and when we finally did talk it was like I'd known him forever, we went swing dancing the next night, he asked if he could kiss me at the end of our 12 hour date of mostly just talking and I almost said no. I can't explain it but for the first week I kept saying I didn't really want to date him, just be friends, he told me he'd give me all the space and time I wanted and by week two I was asking him if he would like blond kids. We were engaged week four and married at week 10.
He's my best friend and my biggest fan, he can bring me back to center with just a look or a touch and has been able to since the moment we met. He brings out my truest self and wants nothing more than for me, and our children, to be happy.
He also drives me crazy and pushes me in places I didn't know I needed to grow. Our love is better than any love song or fairy tale I've ever heard and harder than "happily ever after". Most of the "hard" is because I want to be the perfect wife for him, I want him to come home to harmony instead of chaos, I want to be a good housekeeper but I SUCK at housekeeping. I want to be everything for him, not because he's everything for me but because he's everything I need him to be and if I was stranded on an island I'd be perfectly happy with just him and our kids for company, he really is my very best friend.
Now add all the nights he's stayed up until 4am talking with me because I was upset or just because. I don't love him "Like a Love Song" I love him with all the best and worst of myself. How do you put all of that into a love song? Maybe I don't really need a love song for him but I'd sure like one, one that tells him all of this and is still "cool", any ideas?
