Ode to My Love 1

After reflecting on how far I've come on my earthly and spiritual journey...thru highs and lows...ebbs and flows...thru the usual daily micro and macro aggressions, I soothed my love. While great strides have been made, feelings of hope and helplessness well up from time to time...health issues from stress emerge from time to time...both of us work hard, supporting one another to maintain our dignity...sometimes to the point of exhaustion...adding stress to our relationship, changing careers and interests often to adapt to our vision changes...and pervasive systemic realities. I tactile whispered to my love, "Honey, I love you no matter what...whether you have a BS degree or no degree (you have a degree in putting up with ignorant BS). I am here for you and will continue to love you, no matter what. Everything will be alright...we will make it." My love's eyes watered, mine, too...and we just stared into the tunnel passages of each other's eyes, caressing and kissing each other, taking a deep breath, exhaling, cuddling...
