walter & michael
It was a summer’s night in Texas, hot and humid. As I was walking to a park near where I lived, I came across a friend and stopped to talk to him. As I approached his truck, I noticed he wasn’t alone and proceeded into the back seat. Mike and I were introduced by my friend and ended up at his apartment. We sat around and talked, and eventually Mike and I ended up alone. Mike wanted me to stay that night, but I couldn’t because I had to work the next day.
Well, I tried to contact Mike, and apparently, he tried to contact me as well. We had lost each other. For a year, I continued to try to find him, and when I was about to give up, the tables started to turn.
I was watching a friend’s son one day at the park when the little lad started to get thirsty. We went to find something to drink, and I ran into a friend. She invited us into the office where she worked, and we began talking. Suddenly, she asked her assistant to go upstairs and get a resident to come to the office (as usual, trying to play Cupid). A few minutes go by, the office door opens, and in walks the man I had lost for a year. We went upstairs to talk while waiting for the boy’s father to come by and pick us up.
As we stood in the parking lot before leaving, Mike asked if I would spend the weekend with him. I agreed and left. Well, the time came for me to spend the weekend, and I kept my promise. We enjoyed each other’s company the entire weekend. Sunday rolled around, and I was sitting at the dining room table drinking coffee when Mike asked me to be his partner. I was stunned for a moment, but I finally agreed.
That weekend was eight years ago this coming May. In October of 1999, we had our own Holy Union ceremony here in our apartment and invited all our friends. As I sit here and write this story on the behalf of the both of us, I smile because now my life is complete, and I have found what I once lost.
For all of you who are looking, stop; true love will come in its own time. Now if you will excuse us, we have a weekend to get back to.
This story was written by Walter after we held a private ceremony on October 2 , 1999 in our apartment among 32 of our friends and we are still on that weekend. All we would like to see is that our relationship is able to be legalized and rest easily in life. If I would lose My Love I would lose my life and visa versa – as you see it takes two to be happy . Here’s to hoping that one day we will be free!! we also urge one and all ot support Gaymarriage!!
please note i will update this page as often as i can so bare with the same look all the time
