2006: A Pledge to My Wife
we began this new year in intimate embrace a symbol of the coming year for to you i pledge my love afresh and write to tell you what to expect
this year i draw near nearer than before this year i am unfettered by the chains that bound me before this year i will humble myself and allow myself to be known this year i will seek your heart as a treasure without price this year my pursuit will be marked by persistance, endurance, and unyielding resolve this year the yearning swells inside for hearts to touch as delicately as i touch your skin this year i will reek of the yearning i will smell of it, drip with it, project it, embody it this year, the yearning will drip like scented oil from my beard this year i will anoint your head with kisses and shower your ears with praises this year i will seek you as the young man in Song of Songs this year i will leap from mountain top to mountain top to reach my beloved to draw her into my bedchamber to delight in the blossoming fragrance of her femininity to prove what is the transforming power in the heart of a woman to prove to you and those who will admire you that this power and brilliance in your smile that the sparkle and gleam in your eye is born out of the tender love and adoration of your humble husband
i declare it because it is true i prophesy it to the four corners of the earth my words will be challenged and tested for truth and through it all you will see that which you've longed for and doubted you'd ever see this is the year i will draw you to me.
