In Search Of That Girl, You Know the One…

While we down on the island with our most generous hosts we got to talking about how LD and I met and there was talk of a poem I had written at the time that she really liked. (I was some emo back then!) I finally dug it up and here it is in all it’s glory. Tell me what you think of it.

That Girl, you know the one, the one that makes you better, makes your friends jealous and your parents scared. 
That knows who she is, who she was, but hasn't planned out who she'll become.
That challenges you, tests you, competes with you, all while standing by your side.
That can cheer you up with only a phone call or a smile, that's intriguing but never impossible to figure out.
That knows what she likes, but is still learning what she loves.
That isn't afraid of commitment, but holds onto her individuality.
That doesn't feel she has to say she loves you, only prove it.
Whose sense of adventure is never lost, even if its just during a trip to the grocery store.
That sees a little humor in everything, and points it out even when it isn't PC.
You know, that girl.

I'm looking for her.

Well, the good news is that I finally found her!

The pic above is one I took this morning after noticing that the fire lilies are starting to bloom. This is probably my favorite of all the various lilies we have growing. This morning I went to the gym with LD and decided to just sit in the hot tub the whole time and relax. It was a great morning for it but it’s made me sleepy most of the day and I don’t feel motivated to do the things that I thought I would get done today. Well, there’s always tomorrow, think I’ll just lay low today.
