I can’t find the words.

I am all abuzz with emotions and yet try as I might, I can’t seem to articulate them.

I ache to share this sensation, this lightness of being. I want people reading this to close their eyes, take a deep breath and remember a time before knowing, a time before worries and burdens, of your own and the world, weighed you down. I want to conjure first kisses and last dances, chasing dreams and catching snowflakes.

It’s butterflies and giddy breathlessness, amidst potty training and the agonizing arrival of two-year molars. Across a cottage cheese speckled table and between soppy post-bath towels, I am deleriously smitten. Stolen kisses over sleeping heads and holding hands after kissing away night terrors.

I’m not sure when it happened or just how it came to pass, but the unmistakable truth is that I’ve fallen for Sean all over again.

I was mighty blue
Thought my life was through
‘Til the heavens opened
And I gazed at you

Won’t you tell me, dear
Why, when you appear,
Something happens to me
And the strangest feeling goes through me?

You do something to me
Something that simply mystifies me
Tell me, why should it be,
You have the power to hypnotize me?

Let me live ‘neath your spell
Do do that voodoo that you do so well
For you do something to me
That nobody else could do
