Because I love you

4 Jan

I did it because I loved you.  Even though I was warned, even though I had heard the stories,   I could not resist, when you asked me and  looked at me, looked at me with those eyes.  Those hopeful eyes,  those eyes that I could gaze into for hours, those eyes that could melt any resolve or resistance I put forward.  It was not like I wasn’t smart or inexperienced in these matters, I mean after the last time I had vowed never, ever to do it again but even though I tried all types of delaying tactics you knew and I knew that I would do it.

So I would ignore common sense I would ignore the “I told you so” , the “I thought you said never ever again” and I would do it for you, my love for you was that strong.

 I took a deep breath to calm myself, my hand trembled and even faltered as I started but I knew it had to be done so I pushed through.  I knew if I did it quickly I wouldn’t be able to change my mind.

It was done, I looked in your eyes and I knew I had done the right thing, you looked so happy and I desperately tried to match your enthusiasm but I knew that I had just volunteered for parent help at your next excursion and there was only one thing I could think of.  Where’s the wine?
