Ah, the wonderful bliss of falling in love is one of the most magical feelings in the world. It is that magnetic feeling when nothing else in the world means much other than being with the one who has suddenly turns our world upside down. Being apart for just a few hours sends our minds reeling into thoughts of desperate desire to long for the moments we touch them, hold them, and reconnect to something that is more powerful than any other thought we possess. The wild, hot steamy nights basked in the passion of love that leaves one exhausted lying in bed with your head spinning with thoughts of contentment. Looking deeply into each other’s eyes to the very core of each other’s soul and turning two into one.
I have read the words of so many writers who claim that love doesn’t last forever. Once the honeymoon is over you find yourself living with a stranger. This may be true for many relationships but it is the few that understand the differences between falling in love vs. being in love. Being in love lasts a lifetime and it is totally different than the feelings we had when we fell in love. In my opinion they are actually stronger and create a bond so much stronger than the one we felt while falling in love.
Last Monday was a Holiday and I had the day off while Sharon had to go to work. Although I had plenty of things to do I still found myself pacing the house waiting for her to come home. After years of marriage I still longed to be with her and felt disconnected without her. This is the nature of being in love. Our lives are different from those crazy days we spent falling in love, but the bond is even stronger now. In no way is this an issue of co-dependency as we are both very independent in nature, it is so much more than that.
Just being in the same room with her creates a sense of relaxation and contentment that is hard to describe. We have the ability read each other and know when something may be wrong, or when the other isn’t feeling well. We work together in an unsaid balance of just doing things when they need to be done without the a single word about what we are doing. We share our thoughts each night and listen attentively to every spoken word and yet there are times we sit in silence and understand that all is well in each other’s heart. We both know that we were connected for a reason, even if that reason is simply just being together.
Every now and then that super flame is ignited once again as we return to the same feeling we felt while falling in love and it makes me fall in love all over again. This woman who I fell in love with is the most important person in my life. She is my best friend, my lover and half of my very soul.
It is just not wonderful being in love, I have found that there really isn’t much more that compares with it. Isn’t this what we are all searching for in our lives? Sometimes I wonder how I got so lucky.
