The Birthday Girl

The Birthday Girl

Photo taken yesterday at The Cheesecake Factory

It’s my lovely Linda’s birthday, unbelievably, she’s seventy-four;
But looks so very much younger, just fifty, not one year more!
Her hair cascades to the “top” of her thighs, her “bottom” is quite petite;
I’ve developed quite a foot fetish, such sexy sandals on her feet!
.
I think that I will nominate her, for the hottest septuagenarian on Earth;
Still proportioned so very perfectly, her body given not to girth!
Her face is like a marble sculpture, created by Michelangelo;
She is the compliment to “David”, so awed where’er we go!
.
But what supersedes her exterior, is the beauty of her heart;
Much more than only skin deep, pure love it e’er imparts!
The Angels sent her to me, over a quarter century ago;
Our Souls then reunited, for millenniums, in love so!
.
On this special day I honor her, with words of endless love;
Our union so predestined, in the Heavens up above!
I am so fortunate to have her, forever by my side;
Our love is neverending, she will always be my bride!
.
.
Seventy-four years
Happy Birthday my Soulmate
Our love eternal

My goodness LARRY.... you have such a gift for wielding words..... for narrative storytelling type delivery..... your craftsmanship so easy to recognize from others...... but..... you shine even brighter when you write of your love for your wife...... the longevity of it doesn't seem to matter or even hold a candle to the fact that your fascination with one another seems to grow and grow as time goes by.... and THAT is truly a blessing and certainly creates the kind of inspiration to motivate you to write such marvelous pieces where stories and intimacies about you two shine so brightly!!.....I feel honored to just to know you..... just to know that such Love exists!!.....ALL STARS &PINNED....thank you so much for sharing this my dear friend.... you are a blessing to us all!!......HAPPY BIRTHDAY to LINDA with lots of hugs-n-kisses!!..... your ever-friend and admirer......tony 🐧❤❤❤🐧👍

My Dear Friend Tony,

I don't even know where to start, or how to find the right words to thank you for your incredible heartfelt comment.  As the love that Linda and I share has been an inspiration for you, so too has yours and Cheries been one for us.  We have, through you both, relived the early inceptions of our love.  Your beautiful prose to one another brings teardrops to our hearts and Souls.  You are both the nucleus of Cosmo, the sustaining Sun in our Solar System.

All our love from your poetic Soulmates,
Linda and Larry xxx

Our Dear Cherie,

Thank you for the lovely birthday wish.  We started out very early, dropping Cookie off at Doggie Day Camp just after 7 a.m.  After that, there followed a litany of non-stop excitement, which ended with us both being exhausted, and picking Cookie up at 3:30.  The rest of the celebration was spent on the couch, napping, watching TV, and asleep by nine-thirty.  But, it was one of the most enjoyable days we have had in a long time.

All our love,
Linda and Larry xxx
