One-Time Emotions

Whether written or verbal, some emotions are difficult for me to express.                                                      Some are forgotten, but there are those once in a life-time experiences                                                                     that simply refuse to be dislodged from one's memory. I take great    delight in sharing one of mine with you.

I do not recall such an emotion before or since,                                                                                                    and most likely I never will; but with that romantic memory,                                                                                    once was enough. A man's heart can only take just so many butterflies.                                                                        
I remember the year, the occasion, and that night.                                                                                                    It was one date to remember with one lasting love.                                                                                                           

We had just finished dinner at a nice restaurant, and                                                                                                             within a couple of blocks, while driving, I felt a strong                                                                                    bubbling inside of me.  I felt  so good, I pulled over,                                                                                                   stopped, and kissed my date.

That butterfly emotion was clearly a love token to me.                                                                                                     I sensed that it was far beyond another short-lived infatuation.                                                                                       I was struck with a fever, and within 18 months, we were married.
Through good times and bad, sometimes hot and other times                                                                 not so much, that fever has matured into a covenant, a commitment,                                                                         and a devotion that have lasted for more than 45 years.
