Because You Said So

“ ….as I hold her hand I’m holding hands with the person she is and the person she was when I first met her, and she’s holding hands with the person I am and the person I used to be.  They’re all there- all the people we were and will be, linked like a chain of paper dolls, girls and women, unfolding from,….”

….the first moment I knew she loved me no matter how many times I tested her strength.  She taught me that a person that lays still remains a noun in a history book.  A person in action is a forward thought of evolved motion and that no matter how many times someone says, “No,” a gal has to do what a gal has to do and, “Buck Up.”
