WNL-XLI: "Love is like the wind, sometimes it blows your way"

The funny thing about words is that you can never take them back. You can try to forget them or attempt to work around them, but once they're out there... you can never take them back. Some words go so far as to change your life forever. Two years and one night ago, I uttered some of those life-changing words.

I said, "I do."

The 732 days and some three hours or so since have been quite the ride. I dare say that the first two years of marriage have brought some of the best memories of my life but, also, some of the more distressing ones, too. No one said that this would be easy -- and it hasn't been. It's been hard. Marriage has been the most unique experience imaginable and, if I live up to my contractual obligations, it will continue to be so until death do us part.

The one thing I've discovered is how easy it is for real life to get in the way of whatever forces bring two people together. If life were only so easy as to consist of one man and one woman, anything would be possible. Instead, many relationships -- like mine -- find themselves fighting for equal time among the distractions of every day living. Without noticing, the nuts and bolts of work, home and activities sneak ahead of your relationship. I imagine that it's easy for a lot of people to forget about how it feels to truly connect with your mate... But remembering that feeling -- and recreating it -- is the only way a relationship can survive.

Tonight, I remember with our first song as husband and wife.

Love is like the wind
Sometimes it blows your way
And until now
It missed me somehow

But when I turned around
I saw you standing there
The sound of your voice
I had no choice

I used to have a wish
One day, I'd feel like this
Now I know love exists
Because it's standing right next to me

Beneath the moon tonight
I see it in your eyes
No more false starts
No broken hearts

I used to have a wish
One day, I'd feel like this
Now I know love exists
Because it's standing right next to me

Even in the dark
Even when you're gone
I feel you in my heart

I used to have a wish
One day, I'd feel like this
Now I know love exists
Because it's standing right next to me

-Karla Bonoff
