A collection of 87 poems by a husband and wife, writing separately although several of the poems are about each other. It covers all types of love, from romantic love to the love of a parent, sibling, child, grandchild, pet, and friend, to work, whether that work is serving in the Navy, witnessing the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the way to work, writing, being an artist, and more. There are poems in celebration of birthdays, Valentine's Day, and wedding anniversaries. The styles of the poems range from free verse to rhyming, from solemn (“The Victim”) to more whimsical (“Children's Day”). The anthology includes an essay by Jan Yager about the evolution of the collection as well as Fred Yager's essay reflecting on the 10-year anniversary of the September 11th attacks. Beverly Solomon, creative director for artist Pablo Solomon, said of the collection: “Reading these poems will take you through a range of emotions. In the end, you will be glad to have met the Yagers if only through their words.”
