You Are Remembered…

Six years ago, on November 1st, I met the most beautiful man in I have ever known. He was handsome and funny. He was loving and kind. He was everything I had ever dreamed of. Within two days we decided to marry. I was excited, scared, and confident that he was perfect for me. I knew I loved him the moment I heard his voice. I knew he was the man of my dreams. Six years ago today, he had invited me to the Marine Corp ball, but I couldn’t go because I had moved from North Carolina to Florida, just days after meeting him. It was also his birthday. I was sad I could not go with him or spend his birthday with him, but thought I would have the chance to go the following year after life had settled down. Unfortunately, I was dead wrong. You see, he passed away exactly five months after we met on April 1st.

When I met this amazing man, I was dealing with so many hardships that I could not ignore. He was also dealing with his own hardships. What was so beautiful about this man is that the love we had for each other helped us deal with all that we had to overcome. Knowing that he loved me gave me hope, gave me strength, and gave me a future to look forward to. Most people, sadly, don’t believe in love at first sight. They don’t believe that unconditional and eternal love exists. I was fortunate enough, not just to believe in it, but to have experienced it first hand. The love we shared helped us get through the days and all the turbulence that life brought our way. In fact, regardless of all the terrible situations I was dealing with, I was the happiest that I had ever been in my life – expect for having my kids.

Today, I simply want to say, RJ, thank you for loving me in such a complete and unconditional way. Thank you sweetheart for making my life amazing. Thank you for blessing me with your love. Happy birthday darling. You are my soul mate, my sweet sunflower eyes, the man who serenaded me in a parking lot to Marvin Gaye, and the man who gave me the opportunity to love a man so completely that nothing in this life could take that away. Thank you for giving me the kind of love that books are written about and that movies are made of. I love you baby, through this world and the next, through eternity and beyond. You are my heart. You live forever in my heart.

For you sweet love…

I WISH – Ian Hoge

This ending chose itself
We did everything to slow it down
You can’t control what you can’t have
Still face to face there’s no easy way out
So I’m not pretending
In Hollywood endings
When we both know it’s my time to go

But I wish life was like the movies
We would never have to fall very far
We could ride off into the sunset
And you wouldn’t have to cry
Cuz I wouldn’t have to say goodbye…

One step above
The kind of love only people dream of
You were the first to touch my soul
How am I supposed to let you go?
Can’t stop pretending
In Hollywood endings
When we both know it’s my time to go

And I wish life was like the movies
We would never have to fall very far
We could ride off into the sunset
And you wouldn’t have to cry
Cuz I wouldn’t have to say

There’s no point in standing
In all these “what might have beens”
Maybe time will forgive us for the life we lived
And love will smile on us again

Oh I wish life was like the movies
We would never have to fall very far
We could ride off into the sunset
So you wouldn’t have to cry
Cuz I wouldn’t have to say goodbye…

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

~And love will smile on us again~
