i feel like i can fly when I stand next to you

I made this video for Linda to cheer her up when she was feeling her worst.

There's something that I can't quite explain
I'm so in love with you
You'll never take that away
And if I've said it a hundred times before
Expect a thousand more
You'll never take that away

Well expect me to be
Calling you to see
If you're OK when I'm not around
Asking "if you love me"
I love the way you make it sound
Calling you to see
Do I try too hard to make you smile?
To make us smile

I will keep calling you to see
If you're sleeping, are you dreaming
If you're dreaming, are you dreaming of me
I can't believe you actually picked me

I thought that the world had lost it's sway
It's so hard sometimes
Then I fell in love with you
Then came you
And you took that away
It's not so difficult
The world is not so difficult
You take away the old
Show me the new
And I feel like I can fly when I stand next to you
So while I'm on this phone
A hundred miles from home
I'll take the words you gave me and send them back to you

I only want to see
If you're OK when I'm not around
Asking "if you love me"
I love the way you make it sound
Calling you to see
Do I try too hard to make you smile?
To make us smile

I will keep calling you to see
If you're sleeping, are you dreaming
If you're dreaming, are you dreaming of me
I can't believe you actually picked me

It's a little hard to type through the tears. You two are such an inspiration. What a fantastic example you are setting for your kids about strength, grace, kindness, humor, and most of all love. So lucky to have each other.

I'll share the blog with the monkeys when they are ready (and after I figure out how to explain 'The Stranger' post...LOL).

Thank you Jennifer for all the support you have given us.

Oh my, that had me in tears... what a beautiful tribute to your love, your wife, your life together, and for all you've gone through together. I agree, you and Linda are blessed to have each other! God bless you both. :-)
