I Only Want To Be With You

I Only Want To Be With You

Inspired by the 1964 Dusty Springfield song of the same title.
.
.
If there is any song that describes our love, it’s “I Only Want To Be With You”;
The famous one by Dusty Springfield, that portrays our love so true!
Because, I did “stop by and smile at you, and asked if you cared to dance”;
Then we fell into each other’s arms, and we never stood a chance!
.
For on that sacred Thursday night, stars guided us to each others side;
Two Soulmates whose quest had ended, the changing of their tides!
We both had failed to find true love, but with destiny, had a date;
To meet the person we were intended for, our predestined dear Soulmate!
.
We both were born on a Thursday, just like the eve on which we met;
The Angels sang in harmony, knowing our futures had been set!
We held and talked for hours, then kissed and said “Good Night”;
But the next four ones, we honed our love, for it felt so very right!
.
On that Monday, we opened champagne, and pledged our eternal love;
Knowing we would share forever, what was sent from stars above!
That was over twenty-six years ago, November 2nd, 1992;
The night we sealed our Souls till the end of time, with a million “I love yous”!
.
.
You are my hearts core
You are my Souls sustenance
You are my Linda

Dear Poet Brother LARRY!! And dear inspiration LINDA!!.....I must say that yours is a tale of absolutely magical synchronicity...... much like the synchronicity that occurred between Cherie & I...... and I believe that MOST couples have stories that claim to have some sort of magic surrounding the beginnings of their love story!!...... like we all somehow recognize our soul-mate through some sort of extra sensory means!!.... many of us express that with the "Warm Fuzzies" we feel when we kiss our partner......Beautifully crafted and conveyed my friend!!.......ALL STARS!!......I LOVE IT my friend!!........LOVE & ROCKETS!!.......T xo 🐧✴❤

My Dear Tony,

Six nights after we met, actually our first Wednesday together, Linda came after work to a karaoke venue, where I went every Wednesday.  The first song that I sang, was "This Magic Moment" by Jay and the Americans, my all time favorite.  As you say above, our stories have some sort of magic surrounding their beginning.  I love your term "Warm Fuzzies", because that is certainly a great one for a couples first kiss.  Linda and I have vicariously enjoyed reliving our past, through you and Cherie, two Soulmates meant to be.  

Love and Visiting Stars,
Larry xxx

Awww.....It is so beautiful when life turns a corner and the magic begins that you were missing.....I think it is so special how you just knew Linda was the one for you......a dance led to forever.  Tony and I have only been married for 5 months....known each other almost 5 years now....but looking forward to every day forward together.  I love the kissy picture....sweet!  xo Love n Hugs to you both. ;)

Our Dear Cherie,

"a dance led to forever".  We love this beautiful line.  It is amazing, how that first time one holds their Soulmate in their arms, they never want to let them go.  The four of us have all shared that most magical moment!  That kissy photograph is one of our favorites too, taken a couple of weeks after we met.  

All our love,
Linda and Larry xxx
