Four of hearts

by Kelly Moreland

There are three men in my life I can't live without. Daniel, Teal'c, and Jack. Let me tell you why...

Daniel is my heart. He is my heart of intelligence. He has a brilliant mind, and I find that beautiful and in my own way I love him. I'm not however, in love with him. He's like a brother.

Teal'c is my heart. He is my heart of strength and honor. I'm not talking about the strength of his body, he has strength of soul. That's something you seldom see in people, let alone the sense of honor he has that balances it out. I love him for these things, but I'm not in love with him either.

Then there is Jack... My Jack of hearts. He is my heart of hearts. My first thought when I wake, my last thought before I close my eyes at night. I know how ridiculous that sounds but it is true. I've loved him for years and I know in my heart that he loves me too. It's never been said, but it doesn't always have to be. It's felt deep inside.

Now it comes down to me. What role do I play in all this? I guess I'm the queen of hearts. The one lucky enough to have the other three in my life. If God came down at this very moment and told me I had to live out the rest of my life and never see another soul but these three men, I could live with that.

Yeah, I could live with that.
