Dear Brian, February 14, 2012
There are so many things I am grateful for in who you are and who we are together. You give me a sense of security, love, and joy that is unmatched. You love and honor me in a way that isn't just words. It's deeper than that, truer than that. Your love for me gives me hope and assures me that there is purpose in this crazy life.
It's funny how life twists and turns and shows us ways to be. I am so very grateful that our journey came together and we can celebrate true, real, limitless love on this day of love. I can't imagine my life without you. Thank you for loving me fully and completely.
I keep going back to our wedding and the words we shared that day. From "Here Comes the Sun" to "The Way I Am"...our vows and the readings...but really, it's e.e. cummings who nailed it for us. He gets that our hearts are truly connected and that we are one.
i carry your heart
i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
I love you, my heart, my true. Forever and always,
