I chose this beautiful picture because for me it represents both the man I know now and the beautiful man I will know and love even more as time goes by. This is truly a happy journey and I have waited a very long time for it to begin ... Thank you Frank Malaba.
My dear friend Susan Wylie Wilson (Suzana Wylie) wrote this poem as a gift to me and my beloved. It is very special to me both because it is a gift and more so because Susan knows me so well and in knowing me she knows the caliber of man I fell in love with ...
He comes to me in dreams of night
The shimmering golden man
Slowly stepping into sight
And over me he stands
With fierce and tender sword’s delight
He severs all the bands
That hold me helpless, trapped by fright,
Obeying ‘Don’t’s’ commands
The golden warrior sets me free
And then he stands aside
Waiting for my heart to see
New life as yet untried.
I reach for him, afraid to be.
What waits for me, inside?
And smiling then he turns away
“You’ll be just fine,” he smiles
And as the night turns into day,
Freedom shines, beguiles.
Fading, though I long to see
Him standing by my side.
Who I become, that’s up to me
He’ll neither lead nor guide.
