Love Note


My dearest love:
Do you ever wonder what happened to those two kids that used to hang out on the streets all night, moving from one spot to another, saying hello to their friends? You have to remember the good-looking boy and the tall skinny girl. I know you were crazy about that boy as handsome and charming as he was, and yes, I had a thing for the tall girl as skinny and crazy as she was!

I did grow from 5'9" to 6' during the teen years, but now I've been getting back the other way. :)

And you still love me! Who knew that two lovers as crazy as we were would have a love that could last for more than 55 years. In every picture I see of you, I see the beauty of your eyes that was there the first time I saw you at Hart's in August of '63. We listened to the songs and decided we wanted to dance the nights away together. I know I've stepped on your toes a few times, but mostly I've stepped on my own.

But that's all in the past. I've learned to dance now in my old age. So let's follow those two kids out on the dance floor and show them how it's done. There's still time for a few more dances before the sunrise.

Forever and ever,
Your Steve
