it’s that simple, it’s that much

July 13, 2012 § 40 Comments

I’m sitting next to you-and this is all i want.

sitting next to you–rush enough, i don’t even have to kiss you–your presence means that much.

I’ll be your Dominique Francon if you’ll be my Howard Roark–i’ll be your story book character, if you promise to let me keep you here forever.

Making gluten-free, goat cheese & basil pizza while singing along to Jimmy Durante’s “…make just one someone happy“. I’m dancing on the table –you’re laughing, we’re drinking too much wine–half dressed–i’ve never felt so alive.

and if all i ever had was your hand, and the rest of your body could not be had–that’d be enough, it’s that simple it’s that much–to me who thinks you are that incomparable to anyone i’ve ever wanted. it’s just that simple, it’s really so much.

jumping on our bed- laughing, play fighting-pillows flying–that’s enough. it’s that simple.

I want to wake up, drink green ginger tea in bed while reading about the sad events of the world, you’ll grab me –and i won’t care about tea stains that flow around me–it’s that simple, it’s that simple, it’s really so so much.

i want to cook you dinner every night for the rest of your life. i want to surprise you with your favorite foods, your favorite wines & deserts, i want to make you the happiest man in the world, for the rest of your world. i want to wake up early to make you green spirulina smoothies before you go off to work. i want to have dinner parties with all of our married friends–play card games & charades while eating raw chocolate, late into each evening. I want to lay in bed and read with you, i want to listen to all your problems.    I want to be the exception, I want to be the two that make it work–forever. It’s that simple, it’s that much.

And I know money’s important in marriage, but i want you to know that i will stand by and support you through anything, i will make you bigger, better, more successful and stronger then you ever could have been without me. And together we will be unstoppable. it’s that simple, it’s that much.

i always swore I would marry my best friend. I don’t need a knight in shinning armor, a white horse, a fairytale castle, i don’t need millions of dollars–i just need you. and together we can live extravagantly or plain and simply-in a castle or a treehouse, winding marble stairs, or a wood & rope ladder–either will do, as long as it’s you who is climbing up, going up…. every   day   with   me.

You are the best man i’ll ever have known, and I’ll be worth your every affection–because I am worth so much more then what I have shown to have seemed to deserve.

I haven’t been the best that I could be, I haven’t always walked with grace, with integrity, but I’m changing…

Because you’re the one I’ve waited for my whole life. it’s that simple and that much

I want to be young with you,  grow old with you. i want to die at the same time as you, and be buried side by side.

“Love is the answer,
Someone to love is the answer.
Once you’ve found her, build your world around her.

Make someone happy, 
Make just one someone happy,
And you will be happy, too”

Because together, we are that simple, we are really so so much.

    I always wondered who you wrote all of these beautiful words to and to find out that you haven’t found the one makes the words even more sincere and sensual (sorry for the interlude my son wanted to talk about the end of the world, sorry buddy not happening anytime soon, well thats what i told him over an hour of explanation, whew), I am wishing that you find that someone soon, seems like you need to have a hand to hold, but if i may, i mean if i could give this one piece of advice to you from an old man who never thought he would love again, would you take this advice? I think you would, dont go looking for it, if you are looking for it, it has already passed you by, so my advice is this let it find you, and it will find you in the most unlikely circumstance and situation, i found the woman i married walking out the door of our friends house and all it took was a tilt of my hat and the words it was nice to meet you and the beautiful smile that followed, the rest is 14 years of history, with moree in the making.

  • Your words capture how I feel about my husband! We started dating in high school and almost 12 years later (married for almost 2) we’re still going strong. I always remember that despite life’s challenges, one of my greatest successes in life is having a husband like him. It’s definitely not a fairy tale, and we’re not perfect, but the type of love you’re describing is possible….the only difference being that Vince is the cook in our marriage 😉

    It’s always good to know what you want and what will make you happy…he’s definitely out there.

    Reading in bed together, I like that aspect of marriage, when it happens. I read to my wife, but she usually falls asleep before the end of the chapter.

    When I read others, I wait for the thing that jumps out and speaks for me. Here it is:
    “You are the best man i’ll ever have known, and I’ll be worth your every affection–because I am worth so much more then what I have shown to have seemed to deserve.

    I haven’t been the best that I could be, I haven’t always walked with grace, with integrity, but I’m changing…

    I’ve been writing of the same thing for a little minute now, yet you just summed it up so sweetly.
