This collection is meant to capture the rare and raw emotions associated with decades of loving someone in the truest sense. Real love, the rarest and truest of loves most times cannot be found in fairy tale books. Very few can express the many hurts and regrets that accompany the deepest of loves. Years together tho still in love can become repetitive and overwhelming. Many things that were important in the beginning seem to fade into the background and the smallest things that mean nothing to one of you could mean everything to the other. The ups and downs in these poems and deep emotions are associated with 20 yrs of the truest love and friendship accompanied by hatred, regrets,unforgettable moments, milestones, achievements, goals met, not met and also heartbreak. Most of all they depict how love can see you through anything as long as you continue to try and never give up. In the end if you find your way back to each other and can begin again despite life's growing pains then I feel all your turmoil will be just the smallest stepping stone to your forever happiness.
