My darling Henry,
I don’t think a day goes by when I don’t miss your presence. When being away from you for another day feels like another day taken from us here on this earth. I want to see you laugh in person, your smile. All the crags, spots and dots on your face, the lines on your neck. Of course, we talk in our own special way, but it’s not the same as skin to skin, your soft breath on my cheek. Your big hands stroking my hair. Your warm body next to mine in bed at night. Your smooth chocolate skin. Just the smell of you. Your soothing melodic voice that ripples through my soul.
I don’t see the grey in your hair, the lines on your skin. I see you. Henry. I see your soul and you see mine.
It’s nearly been three years and still, my love for you has not waivered. It’s grown. I know you more, I am the most comfortable with you. Of everyone in my life, you’re the one I share the most with.
Emotionally you’ve always been there for me. Through some of my worst, most revolting shit a person could possibly go through. But you kept loving me anyway. Your gentle spirit and spirited opinions on EVERYTHING makes me laugh and smile. You’re such a complex combination of things that are rare to find in a man.
When I’m screaming, I can’t fucking do this anymore, you’re always there to say, “It’s okay, baby. I’m right here. It’ll be okay. I love you. We’ll get through this.”
I know you don’t think you’re that sexy or amazing but you don’t see what I see. There’s a sensuality that comes from age with you. I remember you when you were younger and yeah, you had a nice look. But now you have a deep, sensuous, smoldering heat that’s hard to duplicate.
In saying that, I’ve always told you I’m not in love with the outside image of you. I see the inside Henry, the person that is “just Henry.” That is the man that I love, not the image. Your intelligence, the way your mind works still intrigues me. I feel real and like myself when I’m with you. Your company is always enough. You big heart and gentle caring touch my soul.
There is not a day goes by when I don’t love you, miss you, want you, and need you.
I hope I never have a day on this earth without you on it, baby.
My love is always with you. I cannot really express the love I feel for you or the depths I feel. There has never been another connection like this in my life. There is no other. We get each other.
I will always love you and the deep way we connect.
With everything in my heart and soul, Meg xoxoxox

Henry and Isolde Excerpt:
“Iz, where’s Brett?” I ask her quietly.
“Still in Vegas, on the slots.” She shrugs.
“Okay,” I say softly, touching her arm.
“He’s coming home later with some friends on their plane.”
This is nothing new, Brett does his own thing a lot.
Then breathing in deeply, she exhales and a mischievous grin spreads across her face. “I’ll sit in the front with you.”
I arrange her skirt, click her seat belt, and hand her a mimosa. She nearly drops it when my hand brushes hers. Maybe she’s as nervous as me. I wrap both of my hands around hers.
“Do you have it?” Our eyes meet and hold.
“Yes, Henry,” she whispers softly as though she isn’t talking about the drink.
Hell. A twinge of hope passes through my old body, and I pray this isn’t the day it decides to return the call of the siren.
Izzy gets even more animated after only one sip of a drink. Soon she’s wriggling, legs up on the seat, legs down. She twists around to talk to everyone in the back, flashing black lace panties and a raspberry lace, Simone Perele bra.
I know this—because she opens the parcels on the kitchen counter to show Marie. She only orders the French line in the hot colors. I’ve watched her trace a polished purple fingernail over red poppy flowers embroidered on sheer black fabric. The green one with orange satin ribbon threaded through the bra straps and orange embroidery on the cups is also a favorite of mine. They’re pretty and yes, sexy.
She’ll say, “What do you think, Henry?”
I usually think I might have a heart attack right there and then.
