You're freaking me out. You are. And I hope you can't tell because I can't explain it to you, at least not out loud. And I don't want you to think that we're not on the same page.

Like you, I've been thinking forward. It's not something I do a whole lot. It's not smart. There's so much that can happen between now and the future, and so much more to discover about you before taking the leaps you're hinting at.

I don't mean to shut you down; I just need more time to make certain we're growing in the same direction and not just racing there blindly. I also know that I'm the one who will have to apply the brakes.

But for the record, I do want to get there eventually.

Not a love letter. But blah........


Say Hello, Wave Goodbye (David Gray)

Standing at the door of the Pink Flamingo crying in the rain
Here was a kind of so-so love
And I'm going to make sure it doesn't happen again
You and I had to be, the standing joke of the year
You were the owner of the lost and found
And not for me, I feel

Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
Take them in off my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

We try to make it work, you in a cocktail skirt
And me in a suit, but it just wasn't me
You're just a wilderness, and now your life's a mess
So insecure you see
I've put up with all the scenes,
This is one scene that started to replace my world

Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
Take them off in my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

Under the deep red lights, I can see the make-up sliding down
Well hey little girl you will always make up
So take off that unbecoming frown
As for me well, I'll find someone who's not gonna cheapen sale
Oh a nice little housewife, who'll give me the steady life
And not keep going off the rails

Take your hands off me, hey
I don't belong to you, you see
Take them off in my face, for the last time
I never knew you, you never knew me
Say hello goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye

Oh oh oh...
Say hello, wave goodbye
Say hello and wave goodbye
Say hello, wave goodbye
Goodbye

I thought about love on Valentine's Day, so it's only natural that my thoughts would turn to you, the person who brought to light how love is really supposed to be. Being with you, I never have liked myself more, been so comfortable and proud to be myself, and known that even when my words and actions would fall short, you knew my heart and my always-good intentions. I have never seen myself so beautifully as I have seen myself reflected in your eyes while curled up on your belly. I have never had anyone give so much to my spirit through sheer thoughtfulness and purposefulness. You always anticipated my every need, and helped me find the right questions so I could find my own way there. You believed in me when I was unsure, and your confidence built my own confidence.

I still see bits of you throughout my life. Not just the $5 necklace we found while antiquing in Olympia, or the teapot I picked out with the money we won playing slots outside of Ocean Shores. I think you would be proud to see that I've become a strong advocate for my child, a seed that you helped to plant and cultivate in the very beginning when the questions began. I don't believe that I would be such a remarkable parent if you hadn't helped me find the strength to stand up for what I know my son needs. And yes, I'm a pretty damn good mom.

I think of you every day. Your occasional emails, however brief, are a joyful reminder that you exist in the same world that I do. And I am so glad that you have been a part of my life.

This might not be a love letter, exactly, but I've referred to this song in my head a few times this year.  No particular reason, but the words are meaningful in some sort of way.

You'll Think of Me (By Musician Keith Urban)

I woke up early this morning around 4am
With the moon shining bright as headlights on the interstate
I pulled the covers over my head and tried to catch some sleep
But thoughts of us kept keeping me awake
Ever since you found yourself in someone else's arms
I've been tryin' my best to get along
But that's OK
There's nothing left to say, but

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me, you'll think of me

I went out driving trying to clear my head
I tried to sweep out all the ruins that my emotions left
I guess I'm feeling just a little tired of this
And all the baggage that seems to still exist
It seems the only blessing I have left to my name
Is not knowing what we could have been
What we should have been
So

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me

Someday I'm gonna run across your mind
Don't worry, I'll be fine
I'm gonna be alright
While you're sleeping with your pride
Wishing I could hold you tight
I'll be over you
And on with my life

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories I don't need'em
Take your space and all your reasons
But you'll think of me
And take your cat and leave my sweater
'Cause we got nothing left to weather
In fact I'll feel a whole lot better
But you'll think of me, you'll think of me, yeah

And you're gonna think of me
Oh someday baby, someday

"Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the day-time, and falling into at night. I miss you like hell."

Edna St. Vincent Millay

Yep, Edna. I totally get that.
