A Beautiful Day

It was the summer we got married and U2’s song Beautiful Day had just been released: 

The heart is a bloom

Shoots up through the stony ground

There’s no room

No space to rent in this town

But ever so unbelievable, you had the space for me. A budding romance between unlikely lovers from two very different walks of life

You thought you’d found a friend

To take you out of this place

Someone you could lend a hand

In return for grace

And you did. A friend found. We’ve rescued each other over these nineteen years navigating through the ups and downs of life.

You’re on the road

But you’ve got no destination

You’re in the mud

In the maze of her imagination

I wonder what you think. Can’t figure out WHY you’d want to spend your life with me. No question, I got the better of the deal

Touch me

Take me to that other place

Teach me

I know I’m not a hopeless case

That other place in our story still being written. Boston to LA and beyond. A couple grows into a family, my heart is a bloom

It’s a beautiful day

Don’t let it get away

It’s a beautiful day

To my wife on our 19th wedding anniversary, August 19th, 2019… wishing you a beautiful day, and many many more
