~~~~~ The story behind the Gift " Bottle of Rain " ~~~~~
try to explain
while alone in The Forest of Colorado
The gift " Bottle of Rain " formed in my mind .
the idea seemed so beautiful .
Hard in words to state , the amount of loving feeling that overwhelmed me as I created the gift .
There's some deeper level , and it's blissful . I felt so much love , all matter around me was
non existent , absorbed with the creating of the gift , her in heart and mind , the love
between us cherished .
in writing the card , i was under that feeling , the words came from that depth of love
my Heart felt .
we were apart for the week , her south in Durango Co. , I outside of Boulder on a Job .
Weekend , drove down , trip to the Hot springs for us to be alone in nature together .
Handing her the gift : " May be best you read it alone , no distractions , I'll be down trail
a ways ,
Moments later , she came down the trail to me , tears , grabbed me , sobbed into my Neck ,
" No Man has ever,,, "
I interrupted with , " shhhhh ,,, just hold me please "
She was feeling that same depth of love between ,
That love created the gift , that love I felt while creating , was put into the Gift ,
the love inside the Gift given , burst into her and just as i had experienced , that love overwhelmed her .
We are all , each of us , very special , we respond with love when given love .
We all have someone in the world , whom we can experience the most intensely deep love with .
When two come together , if it's right for them , they'll have that Love between in their lives .
we are not compatible with just any one , that's a given , when we find someone that is good
at rounding off our hard edges for us in a loving way ,
and we in turn are equipped in like exchange with them ,
when we Love to Feel the Love we create for each other ,
When we feel deep love overwhelm us as we seek to find a way to bring them Beauty in
their lives ,
When they see the love between with the same view from heart and soul .
we make the connection .
The Duality of the Love in that Gift , the Love I felt while creating
the Love created , given , the Love she felt in receiving , over whelming love ,
we all have this gift within .
I had to break down walls to explore it ,
she worked very hard with me to break those walls down , Trusting was the hardest wall
to break through .
once free , strong enough and brave enough , I let my Love inside come out to grow
be alive , live , and easy to give my love , once the walls dissolved .
She as well had her own walls , together , we worked for each other in love of each other .
Transforming together , we freed ourselves and each other of very deep damage done .
we owe a lot to that love between us , it saved our lives .
Fated to meet ?
Unknown , Perhaps the Empathy of each , was the attraction between us .
do we understand what we gained from the love we experienced in our relationship ?
With the Whole of our Hearts
How are we now ?
Happy Valentines Day
