Tantalyzing Tuesday Teaser, June 12, 2012 ~ Sunday with Love

Today is Tantalyzing Tuesday and I am waxing nostalgic.  A single photograph and our impressions in 200 words or less.  Today is Sunday with Love.  Enjoy, my friends.....

Sunday with Love

Sunday's were always special, and this one was going to prove no different. While everyone slept the early morning hours into the late, the dew dried slowly on the stretching blades of grass.  The leaves, heavy waking, yawned into the peeking sun's embrace and we two tip-toed through the house to the waiting, darkened kitchen.  

In these simple quiet hours before the world burst into life, our private laughter, our shared moments, carried the aroma of bacon and eggs up to the others, easing them into the waiting sunlight. 

You were the first man I fell in love with. You taught me that to love and be loved was the single source of joy that life truly offered. I thought that was a special secret, so much was ours alone.   

But, today is not ours, only yours....... alone. As we say goodbye on this last Sunday together, I wonder if this last lesson will ever release the painful grip on my heart, the heart you gave me filled with love. 

I escort you to the sunset of your life on this special of all Sundays and you free a strong, inquisitive daughter filled with joy, laughter and, of course, love into the world. 


Happy Father's Day

I was born when we kissed; I died when we parted. I lived in your embrace while we loved..........
