Morning's Greeting to The Sexy Coupon Book
Each morning he gives his love a gift
One special night she gives her love a gift
Morning’s Greeting (English sonnet)
The endless hope there written in her smile
An air of wonderment she can beguile
I love her more than I can realize
Each day begins to find us here awhile
Remembering the dreams with lasting sighs
Those were the days that never had goodbyes
Those were the days when we would set the style
Each morning’s greeting beauty so profound
There never was a season for a frown
Each day begins to find you still around
And once again in love’s abyss I drown
And then before a teardrop makes a sound
I kiss your face and put your picture down
An unexpected ending makes this English sonnet. As with most English sonnets, this one is divided into two parts. Part one (the quatrains) presents a lover's morning and day. Part two (the couplets) is a condensed version of part one, plus the surprise ending.
Arlene was gone. Her mourning lasted days. There were hundreds of cards and letters to respond to. It was a very unreal time. I was a complete wreck. Friends and family took care of me during this troubling period. They cooked my meals. They saw to my laundry. They took me out and did other things to distract me. For a time some even slept at my house. In the beginning. my house was like a train station. There were so many people stopping by; and the phone calls... Most of these were handled by someone else. Eventually I was able to manage on my own. Except for one idiosyncrasy. I had several large pictures of Arlene. I put these up in every room of the house. I would talk to these pictures as if Arlene was alive. My daughter, Robin, caught me. Through my associates, she got me the help I needed. Arlene was now those wonderful memories. All those pictures were converted to one nice picture that I kept on a chest of drawers by my bed.
Losing someone close to us is a difficult reality. It is so horrible, few think about it until it is too late. I have performed 147 from 1999 to 2010, and I can share this: No one, not a single person handles loss the same. I noticed that individuals who enjoyed a rich relationship were generally better off, after the initial shock. We live in a world of change. Not only people. but places and things leave us. Even youth leaves us. How important it is that we enjoy, make the most of everything, every moment. We could give away a part of our life (to negatives), or we can be positive and constructive. Constructive because we build memories. Positive memories, to carry us through the storms of life. The more wonderful and positive the moments, we make the harsher can be the storms we can glide though. Our positive memories are our strength. They are our light through the darkness. So live, love, be positive and Enjoy.
Let's enjoy a positive memory: Everly Brothers "All I Have to Do Is Dream" (David Monk)
What did you get for Valentine's
The State of California produces 60% of American roses, but most roses sold on Valentine's Day in the U.S. are imported from South America. Love coupon books were also very popular gifts, especially from ladies to their men. Love coupons are a form of voluntary IOU or promissory notes between people in love that contains a promise from one of the partners in a relationship to engage in a romantic activity at a time in the future.
College Humor has captured a love coupon book of a different sort. "The Sexy Coupon Book (Hot Date)"

Death is not the greatest loss in life.
The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
