A Walk In The Sunshine

 when I am near you

my heart still flutters

like the wings of a butterfly

 when I am near you

I feel warm and fuzzy

like the warm fur of my cat

 when I am near you

I feel safe and secure

like having your dog with you on a walk through the woods

 when I am near you

my mind is calm

like the lake after supper

 when I am near you

I feel the love

that we share with each other and nature

At age 44 I lost my husband of 18 years. It wasn’t the best marriage going, however I believed in “Til death do us part.” It was a toxic marriage from the beginning, with all kinds of abuse. I endured until his death as I had two little boys.

In my 51st year, I met the most amazing man. It was hard for me at first because I had no self-esteem, I did not trust men and I was afraid of violence. Boy was I wrong. This man treated me like a Queen. Was this real?, I kept asking myself. Finally after a couple of months I allowed him into my life, my heart and my soul. What a wonderful feeling. A second chance, a life renewal. Is this what “true” love is, and if it is , I want to keep it.

Our love for each other continually grows. We enjoy the simplest things, like the clouds, the trees, and the animals. We need not wear any masks, nor do we need to hide words in fear of retaliation. It is so wonderful.

There is hope for all, in finding true love at any age. I would have never thought that at age fifty-one that I was finally in “true” love. I never went out and sought this, it just happened. What a wonderful feeling. I cannot tell you in words how it feels as it is something that you have to feel. Had we only met many years ago. I am so thankful for him to be in my life now.

Often times people are without real love and they are surely missing an amazing feeling. I am young again, in heart at least. I wake each morning feeling like a sixteen year old dating a high school boy.

This is what Life is all about, being secure in your heart, giving your heart and soul to a person forever. To walk in the sunshine together.
