My favorite birthday girl

Happy birthday to my wife/partner/editor/web guru/soon to be college graduate Emily! The biggest love on the shortest day of the year.

 

A Lovers Dance

By Ernsalite Menard
A lovers dance is patient and kind
It feeds your heart, soul and mind
It brings you joy and happiness within
Knowing that he or she will be with you
Through thick and thin.

Birthday present for Emily inspired by her husband's choice of poem.
Lover's Dance
by
kerkevik

Sally Sparrow died that night.
Old stopped being sad.
Old stopped being fun.

Sally Shipton lived forever in a few hours.
Never born to die.
But she lived for him; her Bill.

Billy lived for an entire lifetime.
In her heart.
Both young and old.

Grey-haired; eyes shining with laughter.
Beautiful eyes that she never stopped loving.
She loved her life, for him.

It could never be her Bill though.
But she lived for him; loved for him.
She danced through life, for her Bill.

Always holding those old hands tight.
Loving her life and dancing the whole night through.
For her Bill.


Sorry if it seems a bit sad, but it's about life, and loving life. Even if you only know what it means for one night.

For music, check out Dinah Washington - Bill on nostalgicjukebox on you tube.

Have a great 2014,
Goddess watch over you both and all you love,
Ray

So glad you like it. You must let me know what Emily thinks of it. I actually wrote it; rewrote it, and typed the rest of the message within half an hour of reading the post above.

Have a wonderful xmas both of you.

Ray.

I'll show her as soon as things get settled down from the holidays -- it's a madhouse! but a fun kind of madhouse.

Looks like you're back! I, on the other hand, have been gone.

How are all the various members of your fam? I've not been able to keep up very well; especially since I still can't get on my fb account, for now.

You can pm me that stuff if you wish. I do have a book to send you, btw.

Ray.

Re: Birthday present for Emily inspired by her husband's choice of poem.
Book? Me Love books. Reading makes my English speaking goodly.

Oh, everyone's doing as well as can be expected. Emily just finished her last semester of college with all A's, doggone overachiever. My daughters are gainfully employed and have significant others, the grand-twins are rambunctious as always. Dad has just completed his last chemo, although they have to check him again to find out how he's doing, my mom is trying to get used to being diabetic, and my grandmother could kick both our asses. Nobody in my immediate family died last year ... so no matter what I may say, it really wasn't that bad of a year.

This is absolutely lovely! Sad, yes, but I love how it shows her grasping life, rather than focussing on regrets.

Love,
Elisi

Re: Birthday present for Emily inspired by her husband's choice of poem.
Thank you,

I think, other than Rory, Sally Sparrow is my favourite character from the new show. Billy Shipton & Amy being very close behind. I could also include Kathy Nightingale and her 'useless' brother. :-)

I think Sally probably managed to turn him into something better! :)
