K is for

Knight! My knight in shining armor. No he didn't rescue me from anything ( other than myself), he wasn't on a white horse, and he didn't wear armor. He is the love of my life. I have known JB for almost 35 years, we were the best of friends for many years, and I may have said this before, I am not one to believe in *soulmates* but I will say that I believe he is mine. I love him more than words could ever express. I wrote this for JB and I feel the same way about him everyday.
My Husband, My Friend

My Friend
I’ve always found in you a friend with whom I could be myself.
Telling you my secrets, laughing with you, listening to your philosophy on life, love, and relationships.
I found that I could always be open and honest, never having to guard my thoughts or feelings.
We’ve talked about the struggles with our kids, our loves, and our lives.
We have been the best of friends, even though distance and months separated us.
We played, we laughed, and we loved.
I have always smiled when I heard your voice, whether
We were miles apart or sitting next to each other,
You brightened my day, lightened my heart.
I found joy in your friendship,
I valued your wisdom and respected your opinions.
I took your advice.
When you were gone from my life.
There was a void, a vacuum, only a friend would fill.
There was an emptiness, even though I’d ask about you, and
Would get an update, a little information,
I needed to hear your voice.

My Husband
Now that we are together I have found our friendship to have a new dimension.
I am inspired to be the best me I can be.
You have helped me develop talents and skills I didn’t even know I had.
You have given me a creative voice, the ability to shine.
You talk with me, not at me. You allow my opinions to be valid.
I value your wisdom, I seek your advice, and I respect your opinions.
I love in a way that I never thought possible. I glow with happiness, and contentment at the mention of your name.
The void is filled. I hear your voice and am joyous.
I love coming home; I love you coming home.
I like the person I am and I like the person you are. We play, we laugh, and we love. I like who we are, individually and together.
My life is full and it is complete with you.

I Love You,
