A "Tribute Poem" to my love, following this article
Tea & Petit Fours "On Chantilly Lace"
People who know me well, know that I live with a disabling illness, which makes my immune system very sensitive. Today I woke up feeling so bad I couldn't get out of bed. I was suffering with terrible bout of hay fever. Much to my delight Mick showed up with lots of love & adoration; he brought me a box of my favorite French Petit Fours & my favorite tea. Mick kissed me on the cheek & told me I was beautiful, I knew he really meant it too, when he stood up he pulled his phone out of his pocket & took my picture, LOL!
Mick always seems to see me through the eyes of his love! Because of this amazing man's love & affection, my life is filled to the brim with happiness. I truly am blessed beyond measure! It is because of him that I have the confidence to share the following with you... Mick's photo of me, "NOT at my best!" So, excuse the puffy eyes, no makeup, hair a mess, & my PJ's,... (it's all for the arts & the love of my muse) by the way, don't expect to see many photos of me like this, LOL!
When a woman feels less then able to meet life head on, & her love sees her only as beautiful; she needs nothing more to bring her bouncing back to her confident best self. When someone is down, a sincere expression of love is always the best boost for one's hope & confidence.

On Chantilly Lace
Today he brought me tea and Petit Fours,
Then bending down, he whispered in my ear,
Saying, “You’re so beautiful today my dear;”
As I sat up in bed pushing back, my untidy hair,
With a blush and shy smile, my eyes began to tear,
I think that, “This man’s love... it truly is so rare;”
His love's like
Chantilly lace, is precious and so fair,
Nothing do I cherish more then, this love we share,
Thought of life without him, is more then I can bear.
