So Tightly

It is hard to believe that just a few short months ago I was falling asleep every night in my little bed, hugging my pillows, and wishing that someone would hold me as tightly. Now my wishes have become reality. I fall asleep each night in the arms of my old/new love with a whispered ''je t'aime mon amour''(I love you my love).
If he feels me becoming restless during the night his arms go around me again to soothe me. He has set his alarm clock an hour earlier than he should just so we have time to cuddle and talk before he gets ready for work. 

I still can't get over how very different things are for me now. One thing that I do know for certain is that I will never take one kiss, one hug, one shared bout of laughter, or one moment of tenderness for granted. I know only too well how it feels to live without any of those small but so important things!

HazelEyedGurl, there is nothing wrong with you. I had given up on ever finding love again. I mean, who would want a 56 year old woman? Then I found my old/new love and we picked up where we had left off 40 years ago. If someone had predicted that this would happen to me just 6 months ago, I wouldn't have believed them.

Thank you, Longrun! I hope so too, and I know that I am on the right path!

I just got over a bad relationship and your story made me cry. I so truly want the same thing but can never find it. What's wrong with me?

It is, Fallflower! Lots of cuddling and laughter-what a way to start the day! It is so different from what I had previously known.<br />
Thank you, Angelfish83!

Thats so sweet! I'm so happy for you x x x

Sounds beautiful, I'm so happy for you :)

Thank you, Windy! Everyone deserves to love and be loved in return.

Thank you, LostInTheWoulds! It certainly is a beautiful start to the day!

Thank you, Frito! Yes, they are important. Unfortunately we only realize that when we lose those small gestures. I am lucky to have them in my life again thanks to my old/new love!

I'm soooo happy for you Jojewel!!<br />
These are the important things in life and so lovely to reconnect with with an early love! :)
