So last week, LOML told me that when he was breaking up with a long time girlfriend, many years ago, she screamed at him, “one day I hope you will find true love.”
He said he never knew what she meant. Then he told me he had. With. Me. He had never known true love before.
I can say the same.
He said he thought he had been in love before. But never like with me. That made me cry. He is the love of my life. I share with him things I could never share with anyone. He is the light in my life.
Today, at work, our facilities director came by and stopped in for a couple of minutes. He asked my office mate and I what we had planned for Valentine’s Day. It was obviously he really wanted to share with us his plans.
When he did, I was so touched I almost cried. I was in the midst of another true romantic like LOML. He describe his TWO day plans for his girlfriend and him. Mind you, he is MY AGE. I told him he was a romantic. You know what he told me????? “All these things are easy. I really like doing them.”
“I’ve done stuff all this week” ????? He got her jewelry. He gave her clues to the weekend getaway. He embellished!!
“It’s because I really love her.”
I wanted to cry. Because he loves her. Like LOML. Real and true love. From the heart.
He forever has a place in my heart. But he will never know it. And he will never know why.
