Chuck sends me a poem every morning. It seems that during each conversation we have, something we have talked about reminds him of a poem that he’s written. So before long, he’s sending it to me. I have encouraged him to publish a collection of his poetry. Because he hasn’t done that yet, I don’t feel I can share them here on my blog. But I want to so badly. He is an amazing writer.
Just from the titles alone I can see the journey that we are taking together. I wish I had a complete title list of his poems and I’d be able to see the future!
I’ve actually done some thinking about that last line. Seeing the future. I think it’s best that we don’t really know what’s ahead. I think I might be inclined to change my behavior or choices in order to manipulate what I’d like to happen at any given moment. I don’t think I’d want to know the title of the first fight we’ll have one day. Or heaven forbid – the title of the poem that says we’ll break up. (Shudder) Because I know I’d try to alter the outcome in some way. And that might affect the very next poem that indicates we’ll make up and be even closer than we are now.
Everything has it’s purpose. The challenges, conflicts, and disagreements have just as much power in shaping a relationship as the sweet words, hugs and compromises do. So I guess I’ll just have to sign on for the journey and see where the road takes us.
Chuck says he has special ‘super powers’ and can see the future. And that it’s better than either of us can imagine.
He can be my super hero, as long as he wears tights and a cape. (Smiling)
My oh my…. I think there’s a love story happening here.
